On January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day), from 10AM – 12PM, we are hoping to form the first human chain across the entire Golden Gate Bridge (and beyond), as a collaborative, grassroots, community-based demonstration and performance art piece. We will celebrate unity and love in the face of divisiveness and hate. Our goal is to be a shining beacon of inclusiveness and democracy to prove that we are stronger together, and that love truly trumps hate. We will stand together, hand-in-hand and holding lengths of purple fabric as a sign of unity and anti-bullying. Therefore, we are asking each participant to bring a yard of purple fabric, ribbon, or scarf.
Let us be clear: WE ARE NOT A PROTEST. WE ARE NOT A MARCH.
Because of the permitting we’ve received, we need an approximate count of how many participants to expect. 3,000 participants will be allowed on the bridge itself, all others will be surrounding the bridge and along the Golden Gate. Dogs are not allowed on the bridge. Those on the Golden Gate Bridge will have the hardest job because they will need to get there early (by 8:30 AM) and stand in what could be cold and wet conditions until all have gathered (we anticipate noon). The first 3,000 participants who are willing to take on Bridge responsibilities, and register as “Bridgers” will receive wristbands in advance of the event. This will help the Bridge Authorities and volunteers ensure safety of all participants. Please understand that the Golden Gate Bridge is a National Park and Monument, and we must work collaboratively and respectfully with local authorities who protect it and us.
Those who do not wish to be on the bridge itself should register as "Beyond the Bridgers." These people will stand along the North and South sides of the bridge (Specific locations will be mapped out soon, but we definitely recommend Hawk Hill for an incredible view of our spectacle!)
Additionally, we are looking for 200 total Volunteers. EMT & first responder volunteers encouraged! If you would like to volunteer for this event, please indicate so on your registration.
If you would like to donate to this cause (not required for participation), please click the Donate button on our website. All donations will go toward additional porta-potties, EMTs and Ambulances on standby, and communications for volunteers. All other administrative and coordinating services and expenses are being donated by the organizers. 100% of remaining funds post-event will be divided equally and shared with the following organizations: The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, and The Southern Poverty Law Center.
