49. Wednesday, 7:00am – 5:00pm, Strike for Climate Justice!

Montgomery & Market Sts.


We understand that the beautiful system of life that has supported humanity for hundreds of thousands of years is being destroyed by capitalism, greed, and misguided leadership. Most of our elected officials have been co-opted by corporate directors and do not act according to the will of the people. They have utilized vast sums of money to discredit concerned groups of citizens and confuse the public.

There are millions of children, Indigenous people, people of color, rural and urban frontline communities, and citizens rising up around the world to ensure a safe, healthy, and sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come. We invite everyone to join us during the Climate Strike in September. 

In addition to actions during the rest of the week, on September 25th, we name those responsible for destroying life as we know it.

Other options on this day include creating 20 street murals, each one representing a part of the whole vision we have for an immediate transition to the resilient, sustainable, and safe world necessary for survival. Join us to dream, paint, and share how we move forward at this time. 

On this day we will put on large display of the depth of our love and commitment to Mother Earth and all the generations to come!

If you’d like to get involved with organizing this action, please reach out to us here:

Join youth and allies on September 27th to protest Chevron, one of the world’s biggest polluters headquartered here in the Bay Area. Chevron knowingly pollutes the Richmond area, the Central Valley, the earth, and many other communities.

We will be demanding that Chevron gets off of fossil fuels by 2025 and that they stop using their influence to harm frontline communities and our future.

People’s Travel Advisory on Colombia, As part of the Call for International Actions, we will picket the Colombian Consulate in San Francisco.

Join Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Piedad Córdoba, and Noam Chomsky and sign the People’s Travel Advisory on Colombia:

We issue this People’s Travel Advisory because the present administration of President Iván Duque and his mentors, Álvaro Uribe and the U.S. President Donald Trump, have no interest in the construction of a true Peace in Colombia.

The Colombian government has launched many campaigns to change the image of the country and present it as a safe and fun place for all the family, indeed, a tourist paradise. That is a lie, given that one of the worst human rights crises is in Colombia.

September 29, Sunday

54. Sunday, 9:00am, -“Racism and Immigration” & “A Report from the Border”

Unitarian Universalist Breakfast Forum, MLK Room

1187 Franklin St.


The Rev. Arlington Trotmanis an immigrant to the U.K. and a leader in the struggle for racial justice in England and Europe. 

In the U.S. issues of overt racism and conflicts over immigration and asylum mirror issues that Rev. Trotman has faced in England and Europe.  He is thus well equipped to speak on issues of peace and justice and has much to share.  Born in Barbados, Rev. Trotman immigrated to England at 17. Under British colonial rule, he received only an elementary education, but saw his life as a Christian transformed in England.  He enrolled in college, became an ordained Methodist minister and went on to become the moderator of Churches’ Commission of Migrants in Europe (CCME) an organization of churches and ecumenical councils from 18 European countries that advocates for migrants, refugees and minority groups. He has authored numerous publications and books.  Due to Rev. Trotman’s schedule we will begin this Forum early. Please arrive by 9 am. 

Report from the Border:  Following Rev. Trotman we will have a live call-in report from El Paso/Juarez.  UU member and Forum staffer Liduina Van Nes will report from the border where she will be spending several weeks helping refugees in the U.S. and Mexico. This will be a rare opportunity to hear directly from someone on the ground of the conditions for refugees on the U.S. – Mexico border.

1. Tuesday’s, 12:30pm – 1:30pm, Boycott Manny’s

16th & Valencia St. (outside)


From Black & Brown For Justice Peace and Equality / Mothers On The March Against Police Murders.

Why Are We Boycotting Manny’s?

The owner of Manny’s is occupying a place that the Latino community fought for! Residents of the Mission community have fought for many years to make sure that community organizations create venues/space that would benefit the black and brown community. We believe that this should be a cultural center for the youth of this area, especially at a time when so many are being displaced.

The owner of Manny’s also supports the occupation of Palestine by a so-called Zionist state of Israel that is committing genocide of the Palestinian People. Zionist also are involved with training police in the US and in other countries – like the Philippines

All are welcome to join us, Stop the Displacement of Black and Brown People from the Mission, help us denounce Zionism and help STOP the GENOCIDE of the Palestinian People by the state of Israel.

Song for Palestine

Hall of Injustice

850 Bryant St.



All are invited to join us (Even if it’s for a few minutes) to demand that District Attorney George Gascon charge police officers with murder. Stand with ALL families who have lost loved ones to police murders. This is a movement towards police accountability. If we keep accepting the way things are, we’ll, never make any true progress that benefits the people. Since Gascon has been the DA in San Francisco, he has not charged any police officers.

Calling for Justice for:

Joshua Smith, Kenneth Harding Jr., Peter Yin Woo, Steven Michael Young, Dennis Hughes , Pralith Prolouring, Dale Stuart Wilkerson, Alex Nieto, Giovany Contreras Sandoval, O’Shaine Evans, Matthew Hoffman, Amilcar Perez-Lopez, Alice Brown, Herbert Omar Benitez, Javier Lopez Garcia, Mario Woods, Luis Gόngora Pat, Jessica Nelson, Nicolas McWherter, Nicholas Flusche, Damian Murray, Keita O’Neil, Jesus Adolfo Delgado, Jehad Eid, and Derrick Gaines (killed by a police officer hired by SFPD)

San Francisco Japanese Consulate

275 Battery St. (nr. California)


Join No Nukes Action NNA at the San Francisco Japanese Consulate to protest the continued Japanese Abe government to force Japanese children and their families back to Fukushima. The government claims that Fukushima has been “decontaminated” but the three reactors still have melted nuclear rods which they have not been able to remove. In addition that is over 1 million tons of contaminated radioactive tritium water in thousands of tanks surrounding the broken nuclear plants in Fukushima. The government is pushing to release the water in the Pacific Ocean despite the opposition of fisherman associations and the public.

There are also thousands of bags in Fukushima filled with radioactive waste with no place to go and these bags are spread throughout the region

the Abe government has lied to the Olympic committee that not only is Japan safe but Fukushima should host the baseball games and special Olympics. It is spending tens of millions of dollars preparing the Azuma sports stadium to push a big lie that everything is OK.
