Hate Free BoZone March Nov. 1

In response to the Neo-Nazi, White Supremacist "Creativity Movement " group's recent activity in Bozeman, targeting the Montana State University community, public schools, at least one local business, and people of color, Bozeman United, an ad hoc, non-partisan coalition of concerned citizens and organizations, will hold a "Hate Free BoZone" march and rally on Nov 1, from 2-4pm. The march will assemble at 2pm at the intersection of 8th and Cleveland (MSU campus). We will march north on 8th to Main Street for a rally at the Willson School gymnasium. The traffic department has requested that marchers park their cars downtown (the parking garage will be open and free) and walk to 8th and Cleveland.

This peaceful march and rally celebrates the diverse individuals and families that call Bozeman home and reaffirms our community-wide commitment to a hate-free, safe, and welcoming Bozeman where we value and embrace diversity. Please come out with your family and help us celebrate what makes Bozeman so special, all of us!

In addition, the coalition has reserved Room 235 in the SUB on campus for sign making from 12-4 Saturday Oct 31st. Please bring waterproof markers, heavy paper and other supplies to share.

There will be a hat passing at the march to collect donations to cover expenses for the banner across Main Street and fliers. Please contribute what you can.
