Following the link in the SB Progressive Coalition's email, I came to your site to get more info about the Unity March on Monday, the 15th, but, except for confirming the date (on the brochure), I could find no further info here.

Where does the march start?
When? At 10:00, like it says in the SBPC email?
When does it end?
Does it go to the Arlington, as it has done in the past?
Is there a program at the Arlington?
Who is speaking and how long will it last?

@Mike Weissman:
Dear Mike,
I am not sure as to the reason your inquiry was not viewed sooner. As you know things were in serious upheaval during this time last year, due to the Thomas Fire and its subsequent aftermath. First responders were all needed elsewhere and the Unity March was cancelled, which was announced at the evening vigil on the steps of the Sunken Gardens, Courthouse. Due to the freeway closure, poor air quality, the speaker was not able to be present at the theater, either. However we did have the program at the Arlington theater which primarily included clergy and vocals, along with awarding winners for the K-12 all schools, Essay and Poetry contest.

I trust that you will be just as enthusiastic this year and that the full day of programs and activities will all go off without a hitch. Thank you for your inquiry.
