We are raising funds for Bridge Together Golden Gate, a peaceful demonstration and performance art piece. By standing together on January 20, 2017, holding lengths of purple fabric while standing hand-in-hand, we will form a human chain stretching along the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond. Our goal is to be a shining beacon of inclusiveness and democracy, by celebrating unity and love in the face of divisiveness and hate. Together we will prove that we are stronger together and that love truly trumps hate.
Why purple? It's symbolic of unity and the color of anti-bullying.
Donations will go to funding things like: porta-potties, radios and communication for 200+ volunteers, EMT's and Ambulances, t-shirts/hats that will identify volunteers, etc. 100% of all funds remaining post-event will be split evenly three ways and given to the following charities on behalf of all the Bridge Together Golden Gate Participants: Southern Poverty Law Center Planned Parenthood The Trevor Project.
What we are not: We are not obstructing traffic. We are not a protest. We are not a march.
