Sojourn Supports Pride

On Sunday, October 12, join Atlanta’s Jewish Community as we march together in support of our family, friends, coworkers, and community members.
Here are the details:

  • Meet at the Civic Center MARTA Station by 12:00 pm. When you exit the station, look for the large truck covered with the banner pictured above. We will be within 100 yards of the station, on West Peachtree between Pine Street and Ralph McGill.
  • Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, bring a water bottle, and if you want, a small bag/backpack, sunglasses, and/or a hat. Signs and posters are welcome!
  • The parade route is about 1.5 miles long. We will have space available to ride on our truck or to walk with our delegation.
  • We’ll have a professional photographer at the parade, so you should expect to be in pictures. If you don’t want to be in our pictures, let our photographer know when you arrive and we’ll give you a sticker to wear.
  • Stick around after the parade to join us at the Jewish Community Booths at the Pride Festival, (G)reen 7,8,9. We will also have a sukkah! Here’s a map of the festival. The Jewish Community Booths are located near the Park Drive entrance to the park.
  • There is very, very limited parking near Piedmont Park (where the parade ends and the festival takes place).
  • There is NO parking at Civic Center MARTA – take the train there. Here is a map of possible parking areas near the park.
  • Volunteer with us! Sign up to work a shift at the community booths here. (Or, just show up and lend a hand – we’d appreciate it!)

For the most up-to-date information, including a specific listing of where our float is on Sunday morning, check out the Facebook event listing here. We will update the page right up until the parade begins.
