Join thousands in honoring the Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama marches at the MLK2019 commemorative march/parade from San Francisco’s Caltrain Station to Yerba Buena Gardens.
The 1.5 mile journey crosses the Lefty O’Doul Bridge and stops at Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park to commemorate the crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, a symbol of violence and victory in the civil rights movement.
On arriving at Yerba Buena Gardens an interfaith commemoration will commemorate Dr. King. In partnership with the San Francisco Interfaith Council, this interfaith commemoration will bring together the region’s faith leaders to honor the vision of Dr. King and to lead participants in a spiritual reflection of his message.
Participants in groups of ten or more (10+) are encouraged to register to ensure a designated location within the march/parade for your team and participants.
It is free and easy! This is a family friendly event.
