COMMUNITY PROTEST THE LGBT CENTER OC’S POLICE PARTICIPATION

WHAT: In response to the LGBT Center OC’s decision to let police in uniform march in the OC Pride March, Viet-Rainbow of Orange County, VietRISE, and other community organizations and members will be disrupting the OC Pride March by conducting a “die-in”. WHO: Viet Rainbow of Orange County and VietRISE. WHEN: Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 10:00 AM. WHERE: Meet at Starbucks in Santa Ana 301 W 4th St, Santa Ana, CA 92701

WHY: The LGBT Center OC does not understand the magnitude of trauma that comes with the presence of uniformed police at LGBTQ+ events, especially LGBTQ+ people of color.
