Carver County Pride is a family-friendly, 501c3 non-profit organization which will focus on providing awareness of the Carver County LGBTQIA2S+ Community, and connecting all community members with resources that will enrich their lives, and connect them to the amazing people they share this wonderful county with.

Who We Are

Three women, Ellie, Sarah, and Elise, who met through a shared interest for more kindness amongst all humanity in Carver County. (And the world... but we'll start where we can!) We started with an LGBTQIA2S+ social group online. Created to make friends and not feel so alone in Carver County. 

We decided that 2024 was the year to be bold, our year to live out loud, our time to let Carver County know we are here and there are amazing allies amongst the residents of Carver County!

And that is the story of how Carver County Pride came to be!

Are you curious about how Carver County Pride (CCP) became a legal entity? Listen to this 27 March 2024 excerpt of the Ellie 2.0 Radio Podcast! 

Carver County Pride now consists of 6 amazing members who each bring a unique skill set to the organization, all of whom have been passionate advocates for the LGBTQIA2S+ Community.

Ellie Krug chats with Elise Boll and Sarah Hempel of CCP to discuss the private LGBTQIA2S+ Social Group they created in 2022 and how naturally the next step was to take their advocacy to the next level. 

In the words of Elise Boll, "We must be louder with our love!"
