Statement: Resolve Humanitarian Crisis and Immediate Ceasefire

As a diverse community representing many intersectional identities, we unequivocally condemn antisemitism, Islamophobia, and anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric, and we are deeply alarmed by the rise in violent Islamophobia, antisemitism, homophobia, and transphobia here in the US. San Diego Pride’s mission, vision, and Pillars of Justice call us to show up for justice and liberation. 

It has been over 100 days, and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza continues to escalate. San Diego Pride and our volunteer-led programs join the global community, including many of our partner and allied LGBTQIA+, feminist, and humanitarian organizations, in calling for an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the safe return of all hostages, and swift resolution to the humanitarian crisis escalating for Palestinians in Gaza.
