Photos from  June 3 March for Equality in Sacramento

California’s capital city hosted a March for Equality to promote love and to #ResistHate on Saturday, June 3, 2017, and joined a national movement of equality marches scheduled in cities across the U.S. during June’s LGBTQ Pride Month.

Being one of the first June Pride events in the state, Sacramento’s March for Equality served as a kickoff to Pride Month in California and Sacramento Pride weekend. See hyperlinks below to access photos.

 


“We’re promoting love and resisting hate. Given all the threats and challenges we, and many other communities currently face, we’re taking bold steps to Stay Loud on our civil rights and strengthen our commitment to health, justice and equality for all,” said Robbie Rodriguez, program director for Equality California.

The march was organized by a coalition rising up in the face of fear and intolerance that has swept much of the nation. The group includes a number of local community college and high school Queer-Straight Alliance clubs, the Sacramento LGBT Community Center, Equality California, Health Access California, Fathers & Families of San Joaquin, Brown Issues Sacramento, Latino Center of Art and Culture, The California Endowment, and many others.
