Cville Pride Leaders & Volunteers

Spread the love

At Cville Pride, we are ALL volunteers. Along with the board members, who volunteer to serve as “staff,” we have additional committees, leaders, interns, and volunteers who make everything we do possible.

Julie WeedJulie Weed, SafeCville Coordinator

Julia Weed has a passion for helping people feel connected in their community.  She led the organization of the successful Q-munity Fairs in 2006 and 2007, showcasing over 40 services and businesses that support the LGBTQ community.  Julia is a middle-school teacher who provides support at school to her queer and questioning students by being open and proud, and by being involved in anti-bullying initiatives. She is a certified Olweus trainer and has been a leader in the anti-bullying education within her school for over 8 years. In 2010, Julia became a volunteer facilitator for ROSMY Blue Ridge (now Side by Side), which is a support group in Charlottesville for LGBTQ youth, and was 2011-12’s volunteer of the year.  In 2012, Julia helped to organize Charlottesville’s first, and very successful, Pride Festival.
