10 a.m.

Start: Solomon Johnson Park (Google map)
End: Heritage House (Google map)

Organizers Impact Orange and Repurpose Memorial are requiring marchers to wear masks and socially distance. They’ll be asking people to form groups of no more than 10 persons, ideally from the same household, and will coordinate the timing of each group’s start time so that they can socially distance from other groups. They will also have free masks to distribute.

There will be no speeches or gathering at the end of the march. Marchers will simply disassemble at the end point.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the City of Orange for their help in making this possible.

Heartfelt thanks also to everyone who donated to our GoFundMe campaign to raise money for our special events insurance policy. We raised more than our $500 goal. The extra money will go to masks, bottled water, and hand sanitizer to distribute at the march. The campaign is still active if you’d like to contribute.
