MOAB PRIDE: WAKE UP CALL!
Between an unprecedented pandemic, an unprecedented uprising against racial injustice, and an unprecedented hot summer in the poles of our only collective home, earth, we see the stark reality of how systems of oppression impact marginalized community members the hardest. We also see that all our struggles are deeply and intrinsically connected. Thus this year we will not be holding a Visibility March.
This year we are holding space for the intersections, and standing in solidarity with all movements. For those that may think it is too much, we say enough is enough. We recognize Moab stands on stolen Ute and Dineh land. We acknowledge the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. We understand that No Human is Illegal. We declare Black Lives Matter. We live Love is Love, and we know trans people are magic. The desert teaches us that Water is Life. As Dr. Martin Luther King wrote in a Letter from a Birmingham Jail, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”
