Friday, March 26, 2021 - 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Union Square | 333 Post St, San Francisco, California


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.

RISE UP WITH ASIANS: LOCATION CHANGE

Due to the concern of capacity, we have changed the location of the Rise Up With Asians Rally! We will all be meeting up in Union Square, San Francisco sharp at 12:30pm where we will start marching down to Embarcadero Plaza with an ending rally.

This is a youth-led peaceful protest/rally! And our main purpose is to bring attention to the violence that has been happening against our Asian community. We urge you to stand by us and stand for us; to uplift our community and amplify our voices. We ask you to come together with us to advocate for justice and healing. 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.
