HCDP officially invites you to join us as participants in the Festival and Parade. HCDP has reserved a booth at the Festival and also will march in the Parade. We invite you to join us for both events. We will need people to register voters during the Festival, and we want a big group to march with us in the Parade.
This year, several parades around the country have foregone the traditional parade format for a protest march. Since Houston is not following that trend, the HCDP spot in the parade will be a mini-protest march. The protest will be consistent with the parade's "Wonderland."
In essence, HCDP parade participants will "protest" Republicans as Alice in Wonderland characters. Trump would be the Queen of Hearts and we have selected Republican officials to be the other characters.
All donations are welcome to help us cover the cost of Parade Fees and T-shirts.
