Partnerships - CAPI, USAP, and InterPride
Dear InterPride Members,
We would like to provide more clarity and, as always, be transparent about the recent communications between CAPI, USAP, and InterPride. With this email, we attach the original letter that InterPride sent to CAPI (click here), followed by CAPI’s statement release (click here). To help understand the situation fully, we invite you to kindly take the time to read both documents thoroughly.
We still strongly encourage CAPI to embark on a partnership discussion with USAP and formalize it by entering into a mutually beneficial agreement.
All our organizations can only become stronger by working together, creating change, supporting and serving our members in the many years to come.
On behalf of the Board of InterPride,
Linda, Julian, and Hadi

World Conference Caucuses
