No place for white supremacists and neo-Nazis in SF!
A white supremacy group called Patriot Prayer has obtained permits to hold a rally this Saturday, August 26 on San Francisco's Crissy Field. People across the Bay Area are planning a range of counter-protests to make it loud and clear that the city of San Francisco does not tolerate these or any expressions of hate, racism, and anti-Semitism.
At Indivisible Marin, we are respectful of the fact that with personal safety issues at stake the decision about how to protest should be left to each individual. The important thing is that each of us DO PROTEST in a way that most resonates for us. Below we've listed some of the many options available. Please choose an action that is right for you and help make our voices heard on August 26!
Marin Interfaith Vigil
Let's support love in Marin! A newly announced option for peaceful protest this weekend is the
Marin Interfaith Vigil at 6 p.m. Friday at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon. The Friday gathering will serve as the launchpad of “Love Lives in Marin,” a county-funded initiative to promote inclusion, justice and love.
Come Together - Rally and March for Equality
Rally at Castro and March to Civic Center: Show that we outnumber the haters in a peaceful fashion. Even if the Patriot Prayer Crissy Field event permit is revoked, this will go on.
Several groups (including Women’s March, LovedUp, Unafraid, Juanita More, and Mobile Dance Party) are joining forces for this event. It will begin in the Castro at 12pm with a rally, followed by a march to Civic Center.
Marin Banner Drop
United Marin Rising is organizing a banner drop at key overpasses in Marin. Participants will simultaneously display large banners at three locations in northern, central and southern Marin as a unified message of love and hope.
The locations for the drop are at the Marinwood overpass, the Paradise/Corte Madera overpass, and the Seminary Drive overpass. The message will be: End Racism In Marin, No H8, Love > Hate. To join on an overpass, contact Debra Taube at firstname.lastname@example.org. They also need volunteers to film or photograph participants from the freeway.
The organizers are holding art builds to create the banners this Thursday, 8/24 at 7PM. Materials will be provided. The location for the art builds is the First United Methodist Church of San Rafael, 9 Ross Valley Road in San Rafael. If you have any questions call Craig Slater at 415-721-724. No RSVP needed.
