About Plainfield Pride

Plainfield Pride is a local organization in the southwest Chicago suburb with the mission to support the local LGBTQIA+ community. According to its website, the group, "will lead the way in the community for all people–regardless of orientation, gender, sex, race, religion, or ability—working to share common values, visions, and goals."

Drop-in center for LGBTQIA+ youth

The nonprofit has been raising money to open a youth center which will be a drop-in center located at the Plainfield Congregational Church UCC with the collaboration of Youth Outlook. In December, Plainfield Pride raised money for the center by collaborating with local business leaders to create a bag full of coupons and goodies they sold for $25 each to the community.

The purpose of the youth center is to provide a space where LGBTQIA+ youth aged 12 to 20 years can safely gather. Jes McIlvain, executive director of Plainfield Pride said previously in an email, "The drop-in center will provide a safe space where the youth will be affirmed, supported, and celebrated."
