7. Saturday, June 23, 10:00am – 11:30am, Families Belong Together – San Francisco – Rally
Embarcadero Plaza (Justin Herman Plaza)
Hosted by the Women’s March San Francisco:
San Francisco will rally to oppose the cruel, inhumane and illegal separation of children from their parents/legal guardians along the U.S. border with Mexico, at other ports of entry into the U.S and in our communities. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has been perpetrated in our communities for the crime of seeking a better life, migration. We stand together to demand an END to family separation.
To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-victimize them. This practice we claim is inhumane, cruel and unusual punishment. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government! This is violent, physical, emotional and mental abuse! We rally to opposes the inhumane policies of the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Patrol, and I.C.E.!
We will hear from elected officials, organizations, and community leaders about what Washington is doing, what California can do, and what we as San Franciscans can do to stop this human rights violation.

11:00am Rally & Venues
5:00pm – March
March through Castro Street back to Dolores Park.
Calling all Dykes: come march with us!
The San Francisco Dyke March is a call to action. Marching reminds us that complacency is not an option. We cannot be divided – we must raise our voices!
This is our day to celebrate our identity and take to the streets – proudly. It is our day to make our voices heard, to honor the political battles we have won, and to fight for the rights we have yet to win.
What is dyke identity? Since there is a great mosaic of dykedom, if you self-identify as a dyke (fully inclusive) then you are a dyke. Dyke stands for trans, black, brown, queer, bi, lesbian, disabled, chronically ill, fat, femme, butch, indigenous, gender expansive love
To be a dyke in San Francisco in this day and age is not just a sexual orientation, it’s a political identity in response to the corporatization of Pride, along with disappearing San Francisco queer spaces.
We ask our male allies to support us from the sidelines, as our march is about representation and taking up OUR space.
Sponsor: SF Dyke March

12. Tuesday, June 26, 7:00am – 7:00pm, Day of Action at West County Detention Facility
SF Bay Area
West County Detention Center
5555 Giant Highway
The only ICE facility in the Bay Area is located within the West County Detention Facility in Richmond, CA and operated by the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.
On any given day, approximately 200 immigrants are detained there. Contra Costa County Sheriff John Livingston refuses to permit local organizations and elected officials to inspect the facility. One of his deputies was recently arrested and charged with sexual assault against two inmates.
We are working with Richmond-based community organizations, labor unions and immigrant rights groups to protest Trump’s cruel immigration policies as well as the racial disparities in our justice system that contribute to mass incarceration of people of color, particularly African-Americans. Please join us this Tuesday, all day, as we stand against Trump’s racist policies.
Additional details will be posted daily, including endorsements and transportation information. JOIN US!
