We will march from Baton Rouge Pride Fest at the River Center to our state Capitol for a rally on the steps.
While building community, changing hearts and minds daily, and working closely with our allies is vital, it is not enough to win fully legal and lived equality in our state. Bringing together a large and diverse community to call for swift and sweeping political change is critical.
With a monumental victory in our fight for the freedom to marry right around the corner, now more than ever, we must chart a path forward for securing all of the remaining rights and freedoms we deserve. A march to our State Capitol is an effective way to do just that. Not to mention, it is important to be surrounded by others shoulder to shoulder in solidarity so that you don’t feel alone in this struggle. We are many and we are in this together.
Your business or nonprofit organization can sign on as a benefactor or cosponsor of the march here. Or checks can be made payable to Equality Louisiana and mailed to 650 N. 6th Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.
We encourage all Benefactors to bring any signs, banners or promotional materials, as well as, wear any company/organization attire.
