Gather between 8-9am at Magic Island
Parade steps off at 9am
This year's contingent will be building for a HUGE "Day of Resistance" on the day of Trump's
The MLK Day Parade attracts more than a thousand participants, and thousands more line Kalakaua Avenue to watch. We aim to distribute thousands of leaflets and call on tourists and residents alike to join J20 events. Bring your signs reflecting your concerns about the Trump Administration.
This is a family-friendly event. Strollers, bicycles, scooters and skateboards are fine. There will be a flatbed truck for those who would like to ride the route. To find us, look for the blue earth flags. Don't forget your water and sunscreen. Organize your friends, your family, your co-workers, and your classmates. Put it up on facebook and social media. For more info see previous post.
