Our community needs to come together and celebrate the founding of the greatest nation on Earth now more than ever, not let Cancel Culture take away this important holiday.
While rioters are free to topple statues of presidents George Washington and Ulysses S. Grant, loot stores, and protest in the thousands, cities throughout Contra Costa County have cancelled their 4th of July Celebrations. We find this to be wholly unacceptable.
4th of July is also beneficial to the struggling small businesses that have been devastated by the prolonged shut down. More often than not, 4th of July celebrations draw people to the downtown areas of our cities and give local vendors opportunities to sell their goods.
Restaurants and bars are starting to reopen, many in downtown Walnut Creek have been packed every night, while Costco, Target, and grocery stores have been packed for months.
If you do not feel safe going to a 4th of July event, simply stay home, but either way, please support our right to celebrate one of our country's most important holidays.
Please sign the petition to tell our community leaders, Republican or Democratic, that they can't and shouldn't cancel the 4th of July by signing the petition below.
