We look forward to gathering with you this weekend at Atlanta Pride to celebrate gender & sexual diversity.
The SOJOURN/Jewish Community Booth will be located in Piedmont Park at Y-Yellow 24. Our booth is closest to the Park Drive entrance.
On the day of the parade (Oct. 13), arrive between 11 and 11:30 for noon step off (unless you are helping decorate the float-then come at 10a). We'll be gathering at the Civic Center Marta Station in Row F on West Peachtree St facing North (towards Ivan Allen Jr Blvd). Pride volunteers will be able to provide directions if you need them! We highly recommend using Marta.
There are limited spaces on the float to ride. The parade route is about 2 miles and it takes about 1.5-2 hours to complete, so be prepared to walk.
When the Parade begins, we must keep our group within 15 feet of the group in front of us.
The route officially ends at A NEW LOCATION -10th & Myrtle St. Be sure to have a meeting place for your group. Take everything off of the float when turning from Peachtree onto 10th St.
Let folks, who aren’t attending, know where you will be. There are sometimes WiFi connection issues. Consider using the app FireChat to communicate with your group.
We still need volunteers throughout the weekend. Please encourage your communities to engage in a variety of ways! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080b4dadae2ca2f94-atlanta1
