Diversity Collective Ventura County is a community based non profit 501c3 organization. Promoting advocacy, education, and mental and physical health for the LGBTQ community in Ventura County, California via our community resource center, programs and community events. We are the parent organization of Ventura County Pride, AIDS Walk Ventura and The Diversity Gala. All proceeds raised through fundraising efforts go to fund DCVC and it's community programs.
Diversity Collective Ventura County is excited to announce the expansion of our Organizing Leadership Project funded by DCVC and the McCune Foundation. DCVC will continue to train and deploy adult organizers to advocate for LGBTQ, HIV, and AIDS policy and practices here in the county and statewide. This next fiscal year DCVC will include youth in the project and provide training and mentorships from adults organizers to help these youth become organizing leaders. These leaders can then advocate for policies and practices locally and statewide most important to them and help produce an inaugural youth conference and a social media campaign around an LGBTQ subject of their choice. For more information on how to enroll in the program as an adult or youth contact Vicente Torres at email@example.com
