Black Joy Parade 2019

$17,270 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 150 people in 6 months
On February 25th 14,000 people gathered in the streets of Oakland for the 1st Annual Black Joy Parade.  While we often gather to resist, this was a time for pure celebration - of Black presence, progress, creativity, love and joy!  It was diverse, inclusive and full of Black folks of all ages, industries and colors. A beauitful day by us for us. 

To make the next Black Joy Parade even  bettr we need your help! The more money we raise as a commuity, the less we have to rely on coporate sponsorship. Even if it's just $5 please help us turn Black Joy Parade into an annual event for years to come.
