Local incidents in Sonoma County of far right activity - attacks of vandalism, hate filled rhetoric on social media, and organized protests are escalating against members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Local LGBTQIA+ owned, operated, and friendly businesses have been vandalized as well as SRJC Queer Resource Center. March in solidarity and support those who are under attack.

March on Saturday, June 24th - one year to the day that Roe was overturned. We said this attack on rights would not stop with Roe and a year later there have been over 500 anti-LGBTQ+ laws proposed across the nation. We must show the Proud Boys of Sonoma County that their actions, hate and tactics of instilling fear are not welcome here.

Let's illustrate that our numbers of LOVE, KINDESS, RESPECT, & SUPPORT are far superior to their tiny hearts and hands of hate!
