Come celebrate a year of vital resistance and solidarity! This year we defended our rights and each other. Just weeks after Trump’s election, Jobs with Justice co-convened the Bay Resistance Network—bringing 50 organizations together to prepare for key emergency actions
Celebrate our wins! With labor and community working together, we won free tuition at City College for all San Francisco residents and saved the sub-acute unit at St. Luke’s Hospital.
Come honor the Arab Resource and Organizing Center for their long-term organizing against state repression, militarism, and racism, and for their critical leadership in resisting the Muslim Ban this year.
Come honor Father Richard Smith for his tireless work for immigrant rights and police accountability, and for making St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church a key community institution in the Mission that opens its doors to all in need.
SPECIAL NIGHT WALK BEGINS AT 5 PM
Join us an hour early at 5pm for a Mission Night Walk led by honoree Father Richard. In his words:
Whether it’s 14-year-old Rashawn Williams stabbed to death in our neighborhood, or our neighbors Amilcar Perez Lopez and Alex Nieto, both killed by San Francisco Police, too many of our neighbors have been needlessly killed or injured, and others sent to prison. Too many parents have shed too many tears. So each month, faith communities in San Francisco’s Mission District walk the streets of our neighborhood where violence has occurred. Along the way, we stop to listen to the stories of our neighbors, sometimes talk with family and friends of those killed, and often pray for both the victims and the perpetrators of the violence.
In our Night Walks, we hope to bring not only comfort, but also a challenge — to ourselves, our neighbors, and our City — to uproot the causes of that violence, whether it is done by individuals, gangs, or law enforcement.
