SF’s “Rise Up With Asians March & Rally” at Union Square
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Union Square | 333 Post St, San Francisco, California
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join us for a peaceful, safe, and social-distanced rally to show solidarity for the Asian/Asian-American community in light of the recent Asian hate crimes and issues.
This event is a student led rally to raise awareness about the violence happening within the Asian community. In this rally we will be highlighting Angelo Quinto, a 30-yr-old Filipino man who was suffering under a mental health crisis and when his family called the police for help, he was met with violence which lead to his death a few days later. In addition, we would like to highlight the attacks happening within our Asian elders in Chinatown. Overall, we want to bring everyone together, and have the voices of our Asian community be heard and seen.
