The art project will allow the community to repurpose their campaign yard signs from the recent California primary election by painting over them with the message “Pride over Prejudice.” Newly designed signs created in response to the attack in Orlando will also be available for the public, including a “Pride over Prejudice” rainbow sign. Art supplies will be available for repurposing signs to show support for all of our community. 

The intended outcome of this event is to turn all regional businesses, community gathering spaces and neighborhoods into very public and visual displays of Sacramento’s support for “Pride over Prejudice.” Together, let’s proudly display our works of art. Together, let’s continue to stand side-by-side with our LGBTQ family and all communities that make Sacramento great. 

The Sacramento LGBT Community Center, Latino Center of Art and Culture, Team Darrell Steinberg, The California Endowment, Councilmember Steve Hansen, Congressman Ami Bera, M.D., Tony “The Tiger” Lopez, community leaders and members of the general public looking to get empowered to use their voice and action to promote love and unity.

Please note: Uber will be offering free rides this weekend to and from places around Sacramento that are important to the history and culture of the local LGBT community, including the LGBT Center. Find out more here
