Please join us. We are fighting to end one of the last vestiges of institutional exclusion, discrimination, bigotry and homophobia in the City of Boston. We need the LGBT community to get behind us to stand up and take back the streets of South Boston that has been denied the LGBT community for the past twenty years. This is the 20th anniversary of the horrendous decision known as the Hurley Decision which legalizes prejudice and discrimination by the Allied War Veterans Council.
Veterans For Peace are out front—we need the LGBT community with us. Please join us on March 17,
We have some exciting news regarding this year's St. Patrick's Peace Parade - the road barriers will be left up until we pass and the street sweepers will be behind us. This is big, meaning that possibly hundreds of thousands, not tens of thousands will see our parade this year. We need everyone help, we can all do our small part. We are all ambassadors for this parade.
We need your help.
- Please contact, send a notice to everyone you know, all your friends, anyone you may know about the parade, including your church, synagogue, or temple.
- Please invite any LGBT group or individual to join us. This is the 20th anniversary of the Hurley Decision and will be an important date for the LGBT community to take back the streets of South Boston.
- If you know a labor group or political group - please invite them.
- We will have an Environmental Stewardship Division - please contact any environmental group you may know or are involved with.
- If you know or can contact any peace, social justice, environmental group on a college or university campus please contact them.
- If you know of a band that would like to march please get in touch with them. Ask your local high school band if they would like to march with us for peace, inclusion and anti-discrimination.
We meet every Thursday evening at 6:30 pm at the AFSC offices, 2161 Mass Ave., Cambridge
