March Schedule

8:30-10:30 AM – Meditation & Interfaith Service at Ferry Park

10:00-10:50 AM – March Line-up at Embarcadero Plaza
We will be gathering at the foot of Market Street in San Francisco, near Embarcadero Plaza. We will be encouraging people to march and organize not just as individuals – but along themes based on the diversity of our communities, concerns, and issues. Contingents are self-organized and growing in numbers.

11:00 AM – We Rise Together: Moment of Solidarity
We’ll share a moment of silence followed by a song before we march.

11:05 AM-12:00 PM – March down Market St.
The route will go from the Embarcadero Plaza area, up Market St, to Civic Center. It is largely flat, about 1.7 miles, and should take the average marcher about 1.5 – 2 hours to complete. We will have a support vehicle at the tail of the march if anyone needs a ride or a break.

12:30-4:00 PM – Resource Fair at Civic Center
The march will end at Civic Center Plaza, near San Francisco City Hall. There will be music, and dozens of information tables from the organizations that helped make this march possible.

2:00 PM – We Rise Together: Moment of Solidarity
We’ll take moment for everyone to stop painting, step back and see what we’ve created. A drone will take photos as we move and sing together. Same song as before
