Celebrate The Resistance!

Join us on the first weekend of June for the largest celebration of equality and freedom in Utah. Of course, we are talking about the Utah Pride Festival and Parade.

Now, we are ready to celebrate Pride once more! Join the Pride Elevated party and show your support for the ACLU by walking with us in the Utah Pride Parade on Sunday, June 4 in downtown Salt Lake City (Check out these awesome photos of the 2016 Utah Pride Parade!).

This year, our ACLU parade contingent will be celebrating equality while marching in solidarity with the growing resistance movement as it continues to fight the recent national and local policies that attack our LGBTQ community and equality everywhere. To highlight the resistance, we will be dressing in Star Wars costumes or related attire for the march. If you have none, we would still love to march with you; please come in your favorite ACLU t-shirt or comfortable walking clothes.

Join the resistance by walking, skipping or dancing in the Utah Pride Parade with the ACLU of Utah. You can dress up as your favorite Star Wars character and lead the resistance or choose to wear one of the ACLU t-shirts we will be giving out the first 50 people who This email address is being protected from spambots.
