Please join me in a peaceful, prideful, protest march for equality. Our country is in need of love and healing. I am calling on everyone to help and support this movement. 
 
We will start at the County Administration Building and make our way to Hillcrest ending at the Pride Flag. 
 
Please wear a mask. We will also obey all traffic laws and use sidewalks. 
 
I am asking that everyone bring a mask with them for COVID-19 safety. I will provide two handsanitizer stations at the steps of the County Administration. I will also have some mask and gloves available. First come - First served. But if you can, please bring your own.
 
I am humbled and overwhelmed by the support of the San Diego community. 

Brown is asking that those who attend be sure to bring with them the following essentials: masks, water, snacks, backpack, battery chargers, and comfortable shoes for walking, dancing, and marching. He is also asking that people use the hashtag #IStand4Change throughout the event with their social media posts.

Organizers say they will provide water at the beginning and end of the march, as well as hand sanitizer stations - although participants should be prepared to bring their own necessary supplies as well.

A program will commence at 10 am, with the march to Hillcrest kicking off at 11 am, ending at the Hillcrest Pride Flag located on Normal Street at University Avenue.
