March with Us in the Pride Parade
There is currently a hostile attempt to alter our secular state Constitution with a narrow religious amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman. Consequently, this pride parade and festival could be one of the most active yet. Come show your support for separation of government and religion, and protecting Minnesota’s Constitution from religious intolerance. Remember that a victory by any group marginalized by religious dogma is a victory for us all.
Join us as we march in the annual Twin Cities GLBT Pride Parade. We’ll meet up around 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 26 near 3rd St South and 3rd Ave South in Minneapolis. Come wearing your Minnesota Atheists t-shirt, or march with us to get your own! We welcome members of all freethought groups to march with us (though parade rules will only allow our Minnesota Atheists sign).
We’ll be staffing a booth in Loring Park in Minneapolis on Saturday the 25th from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday the 26th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If you wouldd like to volunteer, please contact Steve Petersen at achair@ mnatheists.org or Eric Jayne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t make it to the parade or volunteer, stop by the booth to say hello. We are usually located at the southern end of the park, near all of the church booths (but we’re much more popular).
