Complimentary honors Breakfast Before the March.....
The 2013 Bayard Rustin/Audre Lorde Breakfast will be held Monday, January 21st 10am at St. Mark United Methodist Church, 781 Peachtree St Atlanta, GA 30308. The breakfast honors these two highly influential activists, provides space for fellowship, and enhances progressive coalition building among LGBTQ people and our allies working for social justice. In 2012, co-founders Craig Washington and Darlene Hudson received the Phillip Rush Community Builder Award from Georgia Equality for their leadership of this event.
The theme for the 2013 Bayard Rustin/Audre Lorde Breakfast, Re-Imagining the Dream, represents the significance of collectively owning and working to achieve the modern dream for freedom and equality. The program will feature the history and current organizing within Black LGBTQ and people of color communities. Participants will learn more about the critical challenges we face, identify key local resources, and develop organizing goals to address these challenges. “We trust that it will motivate more ownership and envisioning of today’s dream for social justice and equality for today’s progressive LGBTQ people and our allies, our beloved community,” Washington said.
In the tradition of Bayard Rustin, Audre Lorde and Martin Luther King Jr, progressive LGBTQ people in the South must chart and mobilize toward a great dream that recognizes our bodies, our souls, our common vision and our shared values. “The Rustin/Lorde Breakfast has become a symbol of what it means for diverse communities to come together to discuss the social challenges of today, ideas about how we face those challenges, and to share our accomplishments and hopes for the future,” said Hudson.
Following the breakfast, participants will join the Martin Luther King Jr March and Rally by gathering at the line-up site on the northeast corner of Peachtree and Ellis streets (same side as Ritz Carlton) at 1:45pm. The MLK March and Rally kicks off at 2pm. Immediately following the march, the rally will be held on Auburn Avenue in the King National Park Area. Cortez Wright, Communications & Development Associate for SPARK Reproductive Health NOW will serve as our honorary LGBTQ Grand Marshal and speaker at the MLK rally.
The breakfast is handicap accessible. Interpreters will be present to those who are deaf or hearing impaired. The visually impaired can also request the program prior to the event.
