Join the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Coutnies’ contingent at the 35th Annual San Diego Pride Parade on Saturday, July 18th!

All ACLU members, families, friends and colleagues are encouraged to participate. We will gather in Hillcrest near the DMV at 10 a.m. for pastries, coffee and juice. March begins at 11 a.m. Our exact spot is Zone G, space #44. To find us, use the entrance at Park Blvd. and Lincoln St.
[Shuttle and parking information.]

Eat breakfast, meet fellow marchers, thrill to the sound of 100,000 spectators cheering us on, and help spread the word to onlookers about the 8 decades of LGBT rights work of the ACLU!

Since the 1930s, the ACLU has been integrally involved in the fight for LGBT rights in the areas of job discrimination, healthcare, parenting, marriage equality, Internet free speech, and school clubs. We are proud not only of our victories in the courtroom, but also in the legislature and in local communities.

We suffered a rollercoaster of emotions this past year, with California Supreme Court rulings legalizing marriage for gay and lesbian couples, resulting in a flood of 18,000 happy couples securing their full rights; then a harrowingly close election in November, in which a small majority voted away those rights; and a nail-biting wait for the California Supreme Court to rule on the proposition’s legality–with unfortunate results.

To keep informed about the continuing fight to restore marriage equality in California, check in regularly to our Prop 8 blog…and join our ACLU Pride Parade Contingent on July 18th!
