UCOP employees, friends and family are invited to march with the UCOP Pride employee resource group’s contingent in the Oakland LGBTQIA Pride Parade on Sunday, Sept. 10, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Join us as we show UC’s commitment to advancing freedom, justice and equity for LGBTQIA people and for building a future where everyone is free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives.

Everyone who joins us at the march will receive a T-shirt to wear in the parade (plenty of shirts are available)!

Why we march

Pride events are about human rights; they empower LGBTQIA individuals to reclaim the rights and freedoms they are denied, and the public space they are often excluded from. Visibility is crucial, especially when opposition groups and federal, state and local governments are going to considerable lengths to put LGBTQIA people at the margins of society. Pride Marches are important because they change hearts and minds. For more, read 5 reasons why Prides matter from Amnesty International.
