READ ALL POSTS ON EVENT PAGE BEFORE ATTENDING:
Local authorities issued an order today banning outdoor gatherings of over 100 people. To comply with this order while still exercising our free speech rights, we will be forced to cap the event at 100 participants. Please update your RSVP on the FB event page to reflect if you are actually going to participate in-person. If the event appears to be at capacity when you arrive, please don’t join in, you can watch online or observe from a distance.
We invite the community to join us on the Anniversary of Stonewall to remember Marsha P Johnson, the contributions of Trans Women of Color in our community, and to honor the lives of Trans Women we have lost.
Speakers will begin at 7pm prompt, so please arrive early to find a social distanced space to get comfortable. We we will hear from scheduled speakers and then open the platform for any QTPOC community voices who would like to speak.
After speakers we will have a candlelight vigil honoring Trans women who have been killed, and in solidarity with Black Lives. Please bring candles, lights, or flowers to display during this part of the demonstration. (We will have limited candles available).
Please remember, we are fighting multiple epidemics:
So please maintain social distance and wear masks to protect Black health and our community.
After the demonstration we will disperse.
(The Vortex theater is a safe space to meet afterward).
Donation table will be present for those bringing water and PPE to give out.
We are currently working to secure an ASL interpreter. We will also be live-streaming speakers for those who can’t participate in person.
If we get rained out we will still live-stream and will post the changed schedule on this event page.
(Sunday) 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
