Event Details

The Patriot Prayer “Freedom Rally” at Crissy Field and their planned press conference at Alamo Square Park have both bene canceled. Here’s one of the larger protests that are taking place at Alamo Square which looks like it’s taking place regardless if Patriot Prayer will be there or not.

From the event organizers:


Today, we scared off the white supremacists and fascists from gathering at Crissy Field, only to announce they would relocate to the Alamo Square Park tomorrow at 2PM.

San Franciscans will not tolerate hate in our city, that’s why we are STILL organizing to end white supremacy tomorrow and rallying at 11AM at the corner of Steiner and Hayes.

Our goal is to shut down white supremacy and show the real power of San Francisco. We will also be vigilant of any attacks on the Black institutions of the Western Addition—particularly its churches—and stop them from marching on events in Civic Center, the Castro and the Mission.

Tomorrow, stay careful, stay courageous and organize with us to end white supremacy.

Sign for Bay Resistance on their website AND text RESIST to 41411 for important action alerts.


Join us as we show the Klan, Nazis, “alt-right” and fascists that white supremacists are not welcome in San Francisco!

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 10 (ILWU), who has a long history of fighting against racism, along with many other SF community groups and individuals who stand against white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia, will be marching from Marina Green to Crissy Field to protest the fascists, white supremacists and Nazis gathering there. Join us!

UPDATE: We’ll be meeting at near Alamo Square Park (at Steiner St. at Hayes St.) and marching together at 11:00AM

Our strength lies in numbers. Join us, bring snacks/sheetcakes, bring noisemakers, bring signs!

Please sign up for Bay Resistance’s text alert system to stay informed of real time updates – text RESIST to 41411

-Due to the nature of this event, plans may change very quickly, so we urge people to check this event page often, sign up for the Bay Resistance text system, and follow the directions of marshals and organizers at the event.
– Our biggest security goal is to keep the group large and together. Please come with a group of people you trust and keep an eye on one another. Stay with the group. We are safest when we are together. Note that there is no formal security plan in place (aside from what law enforcement does) so be safe and look out for each other.
– Come in comfortable clothing and bring everything you might need for the day but nothing unnecessary. Water, snacks, sun screen, and an extra layer are musts.
– WE DO NOT PLAN ON GETTING ARRESTED, but if you have kids, pets, or anything that might need your attention if you were to get arrested, coordinate with someone who is not going to the protest to get coverage and help if you can’t get home when you originally planned.
– Write down the number for the National Lawyer’s Guild, ideally in sharpie on your body somewhere. Call it if you see someone getting arrested or the police behaving badly. The number is 415-285-1011.
