Working Statement of Purpose and Goal

The mission of the Santa Barbara Interfaith Pride Alliance is to support, educate and advocate for the LGBTQ community within the greater Santa Barbara religious community.

Our goal is to work together as faith-based organizations (churches, synagogues, religious organizations and spiritual institutions) to:

  • Acknowledge and face religious intolerance that has contributed to on-going social prejudices and discriminatory civil laws.
  • Resolve the social and civil injustices faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming and gender fluid people.
  • Stand together in a positive and affirming manner in order to celebrate openness and acceptance.
  • Be representatives of various faith groups that celebrate and share our inclusivity and acceptance of LGBTQ people.

For more information about becoming a member of the Interfaith Pride Alliance please email us at with "Interfaith Pride Alliance" in the subject line. We look forward to hearing from you!
