The 19th Ward Community Association (19WCA) is proud to be a diverse neighborhood that is welcoming of people from all backgrounds and identities. The 19WCA will not tolerate hate crimes, threats, and acts of intimidation. 

We have been dismayed that we’ve had numerous incidents of pride flags, co-exist flags, and BLM flags being stolen, destroyed, or torn from porches in the 19th Ward.

We are asking for your help by being proactive and showing your solidarity.

How Can You Help?

  • If you experience or witness an incident, call 911 or contact the Southwest Quadrant Service Center (428-7630) or 311
  • Show your solidarity with a flag or sign that promotes diversity
  • Share ideas or resources to further promote diversity and inclusion by contacting the 19WCA at or call (585) 328-6571

If you would like to fly a flag in solidarity with the diversity of the 19th Ward, please contact the 19WCA office for a free flag of your choice, such as a Pride Flag, Co-Exist Flag, or Black Lives Matter flag. These flags have been donated by community members. Free flags are limited to 1/household while supplies last and first come, first served.
