The first Pride was an uprising led by trans women of color like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. Our annual rally and march keeps our celebration grounded in our activist roots and is important to raise awareness around the injustices and inequalities that continue to face the LGBTQ+ community locally and around the world. It also offers a platform to lobby for and network to create needed change.
Do you have ideas on how to improve our rally and march? Do you have time to contribute to help organize these events? Do you have suggestions for speakers or participants? If so, then the March/Rally team is for you! The team will be holding it's first meeting next week. Here are the details:
What: March/Rally Team Kick Off Meeting
When: Monday, February 12th at 5:30pm
Where: Portal Tea, 41 W Broadway Eugene, OR 97401
