SF Pulse 4th Year Memorial & Black Lives Matter Solidarity Movement
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Jane Warner Memorial Plaza | 401 Castro Street, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
June 12 marks four years since the night we lost 49 #LGBTQ individuals in the shooting a Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Please join us as we hold space for them with a socially distant memorial on Friday, June 12th at 6 pm. The memorial will begin with a short speaking program at Jane Warner Plaza, followed by a procession to 18th and Castro to lay flowers and pay respects at the Castro memorial gathering spot.
In light of the ongoing social unrest around the country and in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement growing around the country, this event will also serve as a remembrance for those lost due to police aggression & brutality, anti-black violence, racism, gun violence, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, xenophobia, and every community that continues to suffer under this administration and systematic corruption. We will also be honoring all those who have lost their lives needlessly due to federal, state, and local governments’ inaction/ineffectiveness in containing and treating COVID-19.
