Why We March
The Equality March for Unity and Pride San José is part of a national movement in support of equality for all led by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) community. June is typically a time to celebrate with pride, but much of what the LGBTQ+ and many other oppressed communities fought for is once again being challenged by some of our elected officials and community leaders.
Equality March San José is meant to encourage self expression and education on our political climate, while allowing our community to march in solidarity. The March will be followed by a rally with a line-up of diverse local speakers, community engagement tables, and readings of open letters.
We, the LGBTQ+ community, our allies, and loved ones, stand united against the hatred and bigotry that divide our nation. We march to defend inclusion, celebrate diversity, and ensure the equal protection of human rights for all regardless of age, nationality, socio-economic status, skin color, gender identity, immigration status, faith, disability, or sexual orientation.
We need your help. Without your support we wouldn’t be able to hold Equality March San José. Your donations, volunteerism, social sharing, and presence is vital to making our message clear nationwide and even clearer to our elected officials.
