North Jersey Pride at the March for Equality in Washington, DC!
It comes as no surprise that this has been a challenging year for our LGBTQ community and our nation. We are up against perhaps the greatest threat to our identities, our safety, and our democracy that we have recently seen. Pride is not just about visibility. It's not just about marriage. Pride started as a rebellion, a resistance.
The time is now for a resurgence of that spirit of protest.
As immigrants, people of color, women, disabled people, trans and queer people, and other marginalized communities, we recognize the intersectionality of our identities and the critical juncture at which we have found ourselves. We must acknowledge our common struggle and rise up, en masse, to defeat the new normal of fear and bias.
To that end, the leadership of North Jersey Pride has made the decision, rather than hold our annual celebration of Pride in Memorial Park, to join the March for Equality in Washington, D.C. on June 11, 2017.
Please join us on this trip to March for Equality in Washington, DC! The bus will leave from the Congregation Beth El (222 Irvington Ave, South Orange) parking lot at 5am. North Jersey Pride will march as a group and we invite you to join us. Then we will depart from D.C. at 5:30pm to return to New Jersey. Children are very welcome.
Please note: The ticket price has been set to recoup the cost of bus charter. But nobody will be turned away because of lack of funds. If the ticket price is a hardship for you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make it happen!
We hope you will join us for what promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime event!
