We’re going to start gathering at 10:00 am on Saturday, November 15. Our meeting place is 6th and Upas in Hillcrest. We will start marching promptly at 10:30. We will march south on 6th to Broadway. We will turn west on Broadway and march to Harbor Drive. Then, we march north on Harbor Drive to the County Administration Building where marriage licenses are issued where we will have a huge rally that begins at 1pm.
Remember that this is a PEACEFUL march and rally. We are at the County Administration building because that is where marriage licenses are issued. We have a mayor and city council who have consistently supported marriage equality and we are grateful to them for that. We are also not targeting any religious or ethnic group. Our opposition wants our movement to appear divisive. We are going to reclaim and reframe the discussion. We are about gaining equal rights for all and ending bigotry and discrimination. This is a cause everyone can get behind!
Transportation: If you live within the city limits, please take public transit to this event! You can take the Trolley to 5th Avenue and get on the #3 or #120 bus at 5th and C (right at the Trolley Stop), and take it to 5th and Upas (about a 15 minute ride). Bus fare is $2.25. For those who will drive, we are suggesting that folks park their vehicles downtown and take the bus to 6th and Upas. That way they don’t have to walk all the way back up the hill to get their cars! Bus #3 and Bus #120 service the march origin point via 5th Avenue and Upas.
Signs: We are advocating POSITIVE signs. See the Make a Statement! page for some ideas. Also be aware that, according to the ACLU, in San Diego, metal stakes, clubs, and pipes are prohibited at rallies. Wooden stakes must be 1/4 inch or less in thickness and 2 inches or less in width.
It is supposed to be 85 and sunny on Saturday. There will be water available with the proceeds benefiting the ACLU legal fund to overturn Prop 8.
See you Saturday at 10am at 6th and Upas!
