TC Pride Parade
March with us in the parade and/or volunteer at the MNA booth and receive a FREE Minnesota Atheists T-Shirt!
With the current attempt to alter our secular state Constitution with a religion-based amendment to define marriage as exclusively between one man and one woman, this pride parade and festival could be one of the most active yet. Come show your support for separation of government and religion and help protect Minnesota’s Constitution from religious intolerance. Equal treatment under the law for all citizens (guaranteed by the 14th Amendment) has become one of the most visible state/church issues of our day. A victory by any group is a victory for all of us.
Join us as we march in the annual Twin Cities GLBT Pride Parade. We'll meet up around 10:30 a.m. to march on Sunday, June 26th near 3rd St S and 3rd Ave S in downtown Minneapolis. Come wearing your Minnesota Atheists t-shirt, or march with us to get your own! We welcome members of all freethought groups to march with us (though parade rules will only allow our Minnesota Atheists sign).
We’ll be staffing a booth in Loring Park in Minneapolis on Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Steve Petersen at [masked] or Eric Jayne at [masked].
If you can't make it to the parade or volunteer, stop by the booth to say hello. We are usually located in the southern end of the park, near all of the church booths (but we're much more popular).
