This community and family-oriented event will include a Rally in Central Park at 3:30, and a March from the park ending at the RIver Front. After that everyone is invited to a People's Gathering at the Odd Fellows Hall (223 SW 2nd St), where folks can enjoy warm drinks and snacks, talk to community organizers about next steps, share stories, and get involved in future events.
We are asking everyone, artists, musicians, performers, and activists to bring their imagination and creativity to this collective action! Bring banners, signs, costumes, etc. We intend our March to be BRIGHT, BOLD, NOISY, AND POWERFUL!!
We are pushing back against the politics of fear and instead wish to convey that:
1- we are creating an inviting, inclusive and welcoming city,
2 - we intend to protect ourselves, our neighbors, and our natural environment, and
3 - that we are building the community and the Oregon we want for all.
In order to do so, WE must Rise. WE must Resist. WE must Love. WE must Create.
