Candidate Participation Policy for Duluth Superior Pride – May 2022
Duluth Superior Pride (DS Pride) is a 501(c)(3) organization. By law, none of its staff time or resources can be used for partisan political purposes—that is, to support or oppose any candidate running for public office.
In order to maintain compliance with the law surrounding candidates running for political/public office, the Duluth Superior Pride Committee has set forth the following policy.
The Duluth Superior Pride Committee reserves the right to amend or modify this policy at its discretion or as it deems necessary to comply with the regulations governing political activities of 501(c)(3) entities.
It is the policy of Duluth Superior Pride not to promote or oppose individual political candidates, in any capacity at any Pride events.
Individual political candidates are therefore prohibited from retaining an individual booth or participating in the Pride parade.
