Welcome to the Hawthorne Pride Alliance and the Hawthorne Pride Alliance Foundation website. This website is designed to keep the community informed of the activities that the HPA/F ("Hawthorne Pride Alliance / Foundation") does in order to encourage understanding and inclusivity within the community.

The Hawthorne Pride Alliance ("HPA") and its Foundation ("HPAF") was developed in June 2020 to educate, to dedicate, to motivate and to celebrate the members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. Through education, visibility and presence, the Hawthorne Pride Alliance and its Foundation will work together with members of the LGBTQ+ community, and their allies, in a nonpartisan manner to educate, to motivate, to elevate, to dedicate and to celebrate understanding and harmony of all people in the Borough of Hawthorne and beyond.

The "Champions of Equality" are those individuals who have shown extraordinary service to the LGBTQIA community, and have been strong supporters of the HPA/F. This year, on June 26th at the Brownstone in Paterson, the HPA/F will honor five individuals representing different aspects the community and will receive the HPAF "Champion of Equality" Award.
