Thank you to everyone who stood in unity with San Joaquin Valley residents and leaders for immigrants, children, youth, women, families, LGBTQ and vulnerable communities at Equity on the Mall 2018!

The day included a powerful program at the west steps of the Capitol with remarks by elected representatives and community leaders, music, spoken word and an equity platform on some of the most pressing issues impacting communities in the San Joaquin Valley. The Valley is Rising!
