Join ACQA, Garden State Equality, and South Jersey’s queer community for this important demonstration of togetherness and visibility. As the community continues to be targeted by forces of hate, it’s more vital than ever that we come together and show that we are a force of strength. Together, we walk for safe schools for all students, the continuation of our hard-won rights as members of the LGBTQ+ community, and the ability to live proud and without fear in our state. As a bonus, the first 20 attendees receive an ACQA Walk Team t-shirt!
