In the midst of travel bans, the revocation of protected status and threats to not extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, among others, many communities around the United States have sought to promote inclusion. A group of local leaders have stepped up to do just that in Mill Valley on Valentine’s Day with “Love Includes Everyone: A Musical Rally,” set for Feb. 14, 4-5pm in the Depot Plaza. 

The event is being organized by the Marin Interfaith Council‘s Love Lives in Marin initiative and Mill Valley Community Action Network, aka MVCAN, which formed in the aftermath of the 2016 election to “stand up for American values and democracy” and “use the many modes of lobbying and peaceful protest available in our democracy, and practice inclusion and acceptance.”

“Join us as we celebrate the importance of inclusion and welcoming everyone in our community,” says MVCAN member and Mill Valley resident Barbara Rowe. “It’s a great local opportunity to celebrate a special Valentine’s Day in Marin.”

The event will feature musical performances by the likes of Group Ukulele Jubilee & Ukulele Friends, as well as Ohana Freedom Singers—Gonna Take Us All. In addition, a number of speakers will address the crowd, including Fatima Hansia of the Islamic Center of Mill Valley, Mill Valley Councilwoman Sashi McEntee and Tam High Principal J.C. Farr,
