9:30 am - Silicon Valley Pride Parade
August 27 @ 9:30 am
Calling all the Jewish Silicon Valley community — join us in the Silicon Valley Pride parade! Help us show the local LGBTQIA+ community that Jewish organizations stand for love, understanding, and equality.
Proudly walk with us hand in hand, side by side, with one powerful message: LOVE
Sunday, August 27th
⏰ Meet up: 9:30 am
⏰ Parade starts: 10:30 am
📌 Downtown SJ (Julian & Market start)
Nearly 500 anti-LGBTQIA+ bills have been proposed or passed in 2023 alone. As Jews, we have an ethical imperative to treat each person as holy and deserving of respect and dignity. When we speak out for LGBTQIA+ equality as Jews, we change the narrative that “religious” means anti-LGBTQIA+. It’s a mitzvah, a religious obligation, to fight for the freedom and dignity of all people.
Join us as we walk along the parade route, proudly holding signs, wearing affiliated organizations’ logos (if you would like), and accessorizing with a unifying JSV Pride pin in an effort to spread LOVE and acceptance to all.
Whether you identify as LGBTQIA+ or as an ally, your presence matters. Let’s celebrate the diversity that enriches our community and embrace the Jewish value of inclusivity that strengthens us all.
