TWIN CITIES LGBTQ+ PRIDE MARCH HONORING ASHLEY RUKES
The murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police has deeply impacted our community and our organization, and it highlights the systemic racial inequity that still exists in Minneapolis and across the nation.
The Pride movement started when the LGBTQ+ community said enough is enough. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and we must take action in the fight against racism in our communities.
We do not feel a celebratory Pride Parade is appropriate at this time, and the inclusivity of all community members will be the focus of our events moving forward.
Instead, we will use our platform and our voices to support the social justice groups that plan to march on June 27th in Minneapolis.
