The Anti Police-Terror Project who sponsors the national call out, has asked local organizing efforts to highlight the context of Black communities in San Francisco to illuminate the long history of white supremacy that permeates in this city.))
A broad coalitions and grassroots efforts, including the Last 3 Percent of Black SF and the Justice 4 Alex Nieto Coalition, will host an event this Friday to shine light on the history and intersectionality between state sanctioned violence, gentrification, criminalization, and other forms of economic violence against both black and brown communities.
Join as we commemorate the rich history of the Fillmore District, known as the "Harlem of the West" a historically Japanese & Black neighborhood, which was displaced in the first phase of redevelopment and gentrification in SF. We'll honor the case of Justice 4 MARIO WOODS, 26, assassinated by SF Bayview Police, 12-2-15 and the outmigration of black families, who now represent less than 3% of the population in our city.
Join us at Saint John Will I Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church-Jurisdiction West.. This is a celebration of our resilience and multi-racial solidarity, in an effort to cultivate community power with music, entertainment, and much more!
This is a call out to families whom may have been displaced from SF over the years to come back home and reclaim space with community.
Please come out and help us reclaim S.F.!!
