If much of life’s success is based on showing up, then we must turn out in support of immigration reform – rallying our community to be counted — to be an unstoppable, inevitable force that gathers public support as it sweeps across the nation. UnitedWeStay, while doing our best to showcase upcoming local, state and national events, asks for everyone’s help in posting events, both here and across social media.

When any American’s rights are under threat, all our rights are threatened.
When: June 11, 2017
Where: Hollywood & Highlighand
We are LGBTQ+. We are people of color. We are people of different faiths. We are people of all genders and no gender. We are immigrants. We are dreamers. We are people with disabilities. We are parents. We are allies. And we are beautiful intersections of these. But most of all, we are American. Yet our rights are in jeopardy. Forces are gathering in government that intend to take away our hard-won basic human rights.
We are calling on everyone to peacefully march with us on June 11th from Hollywood and Highland to West Hollywood. Instead of a Pride Parade meant to celebrate our past progress, we are going to march to ensure all our futures. Just as we did in 1970’s first LGBTQ+ Pride, we are going to march in unity with those who believe that America’s strength is its diversity. Not just LGBTQ+ people but all Americans and dreamers will be wrapped in the Rainbow Flag and our unique, diverse, intersectional voices will come together in one harmonized proclamation.
