We want the energy we create to be that of joy a a movement of love. Yes, we could all hold signs of anti-this and anti-that and pictures with red lines crossing it out but rather than that how about we focus on what we do WANT, what we ARE and what we BELIEVE in.
The march is open to everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity.
