The Jewish Community Booth will be in Piedmont Park all weekend, October 13-14!
The SOJOURN Jewish Community Booth is open from 10a-6p in Piedmont Park each day.
Volunteers are needed to staff the booth at the Pride Festival. Take an easy 2-hour shift. Sign Up Here!
- The Jewish Community meets at The Civic Center Marta Station on Sunday, October 14 by 11am. The Parade kicks off at Noon. It is about a 2 mile walk and takes about 2 hours-it goes quick.
- There will be 10-15 spaces to ride on the Pride float. This space is reserved for folks who can't walk the route.
- Bring banners or signs. Reminder – they should be LGBTQ/GSD (gender and sexually diverse) related
- SOJOURN has the perfect T-shirt to wear for the parade (and all year) -“Love Your Neighbor (Even if They Are Not) Like Yourself”. Buy it now and get it at Pride.
- Bring water bottles and a light-weight backpack to carry goodies & essentials.
- BEFORE the end of the parade (10th and Charles Allen), collect all of your stuff off of the float. The volunteers and police keep the float going and it doesn't stop except to let people off.
- After the parade, please come to the SOJOURN-Jewish Community Booth for a nosh and connecting with friends.
- There will be photos taken at the start of the parade. It is very loud so look out for signs so you can gather to say "Happy Pride!" to the camera.
- Since cell phones may not work in big crowds, we suggest setting up the FireChat app to connect with your group if needed.
- Make a plan in advance in case you get separated from your group.
- Let someone who is not going to Pride know that you are.
- Updates will be on Facebook. Invite others, post pictures, enjoy!

The Bible commands us to "love your neighbor as yourself" (Leviticus 19:18) but we prefer to take it one step farther and love our neighbors even if they are not like ourselves.
