The annual civil rights demonstration in New York City began in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those lost to illness, violence and neglect.

The March is a celebration of lives and community. There is expected to be over 450 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small business, political candidates and activists. With over 110 floats last year, it was one of the largest and most exciting in history.
