Remembering Pulse-Orlando Events Around Santa Cruz County!

Remembering and Honoring: Pulse-Orlando, Watsonville

Join Pajaro Valley Pride for an evening dedicated to sharing words, and holding space where we can continue to show our solidarity with the ongoing march for equality. Tragedies like these reminds us that we yet have work to do, and why it’s important to stand together regardless of social creeds and backgrounds. Only united in love can we come closer to a peaceful society where these events will only linger as historical memories.

Let’s share poems, music, thoughts, ideas, and art, which all contribute to our healing and to our resolve to move forward. We ask all those planning to participate to be mindful of the space we are collectively creating, and that we are thoughtful with what we want to share.
