Racism, bigotry, misogyny, sexism, and hatred are alive and well in this country. The candidate who has been given the status of president-elect has given individuals a platform to verbalize and act on hatred and discrimination. These deplorable behaviors by our fellow Americans have been normalized and deemed as acceptable.
This is too important and too impactful for us to remain silent or to be complacent.
We must stand together; whether you are Caucasian, female, male, a member of the LGBTQ community, African American, Latino, Muslim, Green, Purple, Blue, this is about all of us. Intolerance and hatred will not define us. We cannot allow it to do so.
Join us in Cal Anderson Park on Sunday, November 13th, for an evening of love, support, and togetherness. Bring your children, your families, your support systems and join us as we show the nation, and the world, that the United States of America is a country of kindness and equality. We will stand together with acceptance and love. We will protect our communities and our families against this hatred. We will stand with any and every human being that faces discrimination, bigotry, or hatred.
We will not be silent. Together, we are strong and our voices will only grow into a deafening roar.
“You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise.” – Maya Angelou
