"SPEAK OUT AGAINST RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION, STAND UP FOR INCLUSION"

WHAT: Speak Out Against Racism And Discrimination, Stand Up For Inclusion Rally and March

WHERE: In front of the LGBT Community Center (Market at Octavia)

WHEN: 5:00 PM, Friday, October 1, 2004

September 24, San Francisco - A coalition of primarily LGBT
organizations have come together to plan an October 1 demonstration to
raise awareness about racism and other forms of discrimination within
the San Francisco LGBT community. The theme is "Speak Out Against
Racism
And Discrimination, Stand Up For Inclusion." While many have worked for
years to create greater inclusion, recently there has been a
groundswell
of people speaking out. The coalition embraces this moment to help
bring about real change and make a claim for greater racial, gender,
age, class, and other forms of belonging among San Francisco's LGBT
people. The march strives to inspire ongoing action from all in our
community-as individuals, workers, business owners, community
organizers, and leaders-to make San Francisco a truly welcoming
homeland
for all LGBT people.

Organizers include Black Rap, And Castro For All, ANSWER, Asian Pacific
Islander Queer Women and Transgender Coalition, the Harvey Milk
Democratic Club, the SF LGBT Pride Celebration Committee, and the Gay
Asian Pacific Alliance. To date, over 20 other organizations have
joined
as co-sponsors, pledging to bring support and energy to this powerful
event. Co-sponsors include: AIDS Emergency Fund, AIDS Housing Alliance,
Alice B. Toklas Democratic Club, API Wellness, Bay Area American Indian
Two Spirits, Breast Cancer Emergency Fund, Community United Against
Violence, Ellas En Accion, Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education
Network-SFEB, In Partnership Consulting, Inc., Lavender Caucus of SEIU,
Lesbians & Gays of African Descent Democratic Association, Marriage
Equality California, Men of All Colors Together, Nia Collective,
Positive Resource Center, Pride at Work, Queers for Peace and Justice,
Remembering Our Dead, San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, San Francisco
Lesbian Chorus, Sistahs Steppin' in Pride, Team SF, UC Berkeley School
