Columbus: BRAVO fully embraces the reality that racism, genderism, sexism, heterosexism, ageism, classism, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, and all other forms of oppression are intrinsically linked. When one of us is hurt… when one of us is harmed we all are harmed. We stand with our community, our entire communities in opposition to all forms of oppression and violence, hate violence, interpersonal violence, and state violence. PRIDE is a March; a movement born of a resistance to state violence against our communities. We join others in our community calling for justice for the Black Pride 4. We call for hard conversations, we welcome uncomfortable conversations and creating safe spaces for those conversations. We pledge to continue the hard work of coming together to seek unity, equality, and safety for all.
