Indivisible East Bay proudly joined Indivisible San Francisco to march with the Resistance Contingent in the June 30 SF Pride Parade. Pride’s 2019 theme, “Generations of Resistance,” honors the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots; our contingent was dedicated to honoring these revolutionary renegades for civil rights and justice for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Many of your fave Bay Area resistance groups came out, including Alameda4Impeachment (A4I), and we all pushed the “Justice is Coming” message with calls for impeachment. The crowd was super eager to repeat our message throughout the whole long parade – we got loud enough that even Speaker Pelosi couldn’t deny the public groundswell!
Whether you joined us or not, don’t miss more wonderful photos than we could fit into this article, all taken by Mary DeShaw, a volunteer photographer with Pro Bono Photography; and videographer Lis Cox’s videos, here and here.
This beautiful and joyful day was a welcome reminder that even in tumultuous times, if we come together as a community to fight injustice, love has the power to triumph and unify all.
