Come gather every week at sunset at the George Floyd Ocean Beach Memorial, located where Vicente reaches the sand on the concrete walkway at Ocean Beach in the Outer Sunset just north of the San Francisco Zoo.
Social distance, mouth coverings, peaceful. It planned for there to be a circle dance through the setting sun and beyond.
This is scheduled to take place every Sunday with music at 6:30pm and the stroll at approximately 7:30pm to 8:30pm, but times may change due to sunset.
As far as we know, the George Floyd mural at Ocean Beach was first observed on June 3rd by @freeheelfreespirit (the organizer of this event)

This memorial, the George Floyd Ocean Beach Memorial, is intended to occur every Sunday at 7:30pm.
While there are yet many among us unable or unwilling to face the ongoing dehumanization of people of color, we gather at the George Floyd Ocean Beach Memorial and confront racism whenever and wherever we encounter it; whether in the open streets in broad daylight, or in the unlit corners of society: the backrooms, the boardrooms and the courtrooms.
This patch of wall, sand and water looking out to the western sky is now sacred ground in the vital resistance against the systemic and structural racism that plagues our nation and undermines our national security.
We will not just mourn. We will also dance and sing and spread the love that is in our hearts for our collective humanity.
At dusk, hundreds of California Brown Pelicans journey past the George Floyd Ocean Beach Memorial. In addition to resourcefulness, the pelican totem symbolizes social responsibility and the attributes of teamwork, generosity and friendship.
We know that there are many other names that could be added to the George Floyd Ocean Beach Memorial, perhaps as many names as there are pelicans in the sky.
Nothing prevents us from adding these names.
See you at the beach.
