Charlotte March for EQUALITY

The Equality March for Unity and Pride is a global movement that will be brought to Charlotte, NC- the epicenter of HB2.  

We will use the Equality March- Charlotte, along with our National and Sister marches, to give voice to our concerns, and to support, uplift, and bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability. We affirm and celebrate that we are a mix of diverse communities. 

Join us for this family friendly march through uptown Charlotte. All marchers should meet at First Ward Park just before noon. When the march begins, we will head down Brevard St. towards Spectrum Center, take 5th St. to Caldwell St. then go down E 3rd St. to Marshall Park where special speakers will make an appearance. Marchers must stay on the sidewalks and obey traffic and pedestrian signals while also being mindful of other pedestrian traffic.

If you have questions or would like to volunteer please email: equalitymarchcharlotte@gmail.com.
