The event consisted of multiple components including keynote speeches by Carli Rohner, Ray Sullivan, Representative Annessa Hartman, and Ashley Vaugn. The event also included performances by Divine, a student a capella group, and Kinetic, a student dance group. These performances were followed by an on-campus march led by students, Ray Sullivan and Julia Rankin, beginning at the Memorial Union quad and across to the Valley Library.
