Join the Atheist/Humanist Contingent in Gay Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30th
Again this year local groups will form an Atheist/Humanist Contingent in the Pride Parade. Last year we had over 60 people, and it was lots of fun. There is something special about many people cheering as you march in the parade. Let's make it larger this year.
Remember that the arguments against LGBT rights are rooted in religion, just like the attacks on women's rights. Let's support our natural allies.
We expect to assemble at 11:00 at our designated place in downtown SF. We will let everyone know where & when as soon as Pride notifies us.
We need two official Contingent Monitors for every 25 people in our group. This means we need at least 6 monitors.Trainings are MANDATORY for certification as a contingent monitor. Training begins the evening ofTuesday, June 11th, at several locations in the Bay Area, including Emeryville & San Francisco. Please be sure to notify Larry if you intend to be a Contingent Monitor. He must know that we have enough monitors ASAP. Be sure to register after the training as a Monitor for our group, Bay Area Atheist/Humanist Groups, aka Atheist Groups (Application #9762).
The training last an hour and advance registration is not required. Please arrive on-time to prevent being turned away from a full training class.

Atheist Political Activism in the Bay Area
Atheist Advocates of San Francisco, along with East Bay Atheists, spearheads atheist political activism in the Bay Area. In July we called for a protest at the Oakland Zoo, demanding the removal of a Ten Commandments monument on city property. Several days before our protest, the Commandments were removed. We recently attended a Santa Clara City Council meeting, along with other activists, in support of removing a cross from a city park. We are working on crosses in Redwood City and Albany, both on public property. If you feel that social events, lectures and cultural events are not enough, you are our people. Please join us.
