Saturday, January 21, 2017, starting at 10 a.m.
Calling all Queers throughout Georgia: no matter how you identify along the gender identity/sexual orientation LGBTQIA spectrum, your families, your health, your jobs, your housing, your fundamental rights are threatened by the Trump administration. We hope to mobilize at least 500 of us for the March on Washington.
This march is for all of us, recognizing the powerful intersectionality that guides our peaceful protest. To quote from the national mission statement for this march, “We practice empathy with the intent to learn about the intersecting identities of each other. We will suspend our first judgment and do our best to lead without ego.” All are welcome; all are needed.
Here’s a link for bus transportation to the event: http://tiny.cc/wmowgabusroutes. There will also be scholarship money available for those with financial need.
Please sign up here if you plan to attend: http://tiny.cc/500GAQueers. It’s important you provide a valid email, which we promise not to share with anyone, in order to stay informed about where our LGBTQ contingent will meet. We will also share information about activities and events occurring before, during, and after the march. We need volunteers starting December 2nd to distribute flyers at bars, coffee shops, churches, gyms, community meetings, wherever we queers gather, as well as to get the word out via social media.
