We are pleased to announce that Swords to Plowshares will be participating in the 2016 SF Pride parade. Our contingent will include Swords to Plowshares employees, clients and community supporters, and of course a beautiful float decorated by our participants. Though many of our staff, as well as clients, have participated in SF Pride in past years, we are excited to announce that this year will be our inaugural debut as an official contingent!
An integral part of Swords to Plowshares’ mission directly reflects this year’s parade theme “for economic and racial justice, making our involvement in this year’s procession an important display of solidarity with LGBTQI veterans and active duty service members. Since 1974, Swords to Plowshares has served all veterans regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, military branch, era of service or socioeconomic background.
If you are a regular at the parade or if you’ve never been, come out and support us as we make our way through the San Francisco streets with SF Pride Parade. Members of Swords to Plowshares staff and clients are invited to join our parade contingent on Sunday, June 26th! For more information, please go to our event page here.
