The San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade will take place on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula.
We recognize that Indigenous peoples are the traditional stewards of this land and that their continued presence, resilience, and resistance are critical to the health of our community and the planet. We honor the Indigenous peoples who have lived on this land for thousands of years, and we pay our respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.
As an organization committed to creating a more just and equitable world, we believe it is important to recognize the historical and ongoing injustices committed against Indigenous peoples and to work towards repairing the harm that has been done. We encourage our community to learn about and support the work of Indigenous-led organizations that are working towards justice and decolonization.
We also recognize that the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community are deeply interconnected with those of Indigenous peoples, as both have faced and continue to face systemic oppression and violence. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples in their struggles for sovereignty, self-determination, and the protection of their lands, waters, and cultures.
