Most of San Francisco is shocked and saddened by the results of our presidential election, and fearful for what the next four years will mean for our nation, our families, and our friends. For over a year now, we have had to listen to Donald Trump’s bigoted, racist and sexist rhetoric that has brought out the worst in our electorate, and has resulted in what will surely be the worst presidency this country has ever experienced.
On Sunday, let’s come together to protest the results of our election and march for what we hold dear about our country and the democratic process: the freedom to express ourselves, tolerance, peace, education, safe haven for refugees and immigrants from around the world, equal rights, inclusion, justice, liberty and freedom.
The march will begin on Sunday at 11am on John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park, directly behind the de Young Museum (enter the park at 10th Avenue & Fulton) – Google Map. We will march west down JFK Drive to Ocean Beach. RSVP or Share the event on Facebook
Please wear a safety pin (#safetypin) attached to your clothing (we will bring some if you do not have any on hand). The safety pin began as a gesture after Brexit, to signify to those around you that you are a beacon of “safety”. In the US, it was quickly adopted after the election to show support for victims of hate. More info here on #safetypin
