GT Dems & Indivisibles At Up North Pride Parade


Up North Pride Parade, Traverse City

Sunday, June 25, 2017

A diverse and colorful crowd gathered Sunday, June 25, at The Little Fleet to kick off the fourth annual Up North Pride Parade with opening remarks by Jenn Cameron, Up North Pride Co-Founder. People of all ages and backgrounds, their children and dogs mingled and celebrated diversity and solidarity, with chants of “Love Wins”, poetry and music.

In attendance were many members of Indivisible TC and GT Dems, including Democratic candidate Matt Morgan, who is running against Jack Bergman to represent the 1st District in the US House come 2018. A group from Indivisible’s Education Action Forum, asked Morgan what he thought of the trend toward school privatization. He responded by saying that although “vouchers don’t work, charters are here to stay. What we have to do is insist on their being inclusive, transparent and accountable.”

From the Little Fleet, the marchers filed down Front St. ending at Clinch Park for a Pride Picnic with music by Josh Davis and May Erlewine, culminating at the Bijou Theater with a free screening of “Two Spirits.” Detractors were few, in fact, I only witnessed one. Considering the threat of rain, crowd turn-out appeared robust to include several thousand people.
