Rallies, protests, vigils, and more taking place July 3-5 in San Francisco & the Bay Area
By - posted 7/4/2020 No Comment

UPDATED PROTEST/RALLY LIST – Check out Funcheap’s updated list of Bay Area protests (updated several times a week)

With fireworks and most parades and 4th of July events being canceled, there are plenty of protests scheduled if you’re looking for a way to (safely and distantly) make your voice heard. We know it’s hard to stay connected sometimes as a community. We’re doing our best to compile a list of as many upcoming protests, rallies, vigils and clean-up events as possible.

Did we miss any events? Please email us at events_crew@funcheap.com with the date/time, details and any links you have.

Please note sometimes all we have are screenshots from Instagram so we can’t “vouch” for any of theses. Our goal is to share as many peaceful events as possible. If you have extra info, please let us know. Details can change rapidly and events may be canceled or changed at the last minute.
