A the historic Courthouse Square in Redwood City on Sunday, June 21st, demonstrators came together to say "San Mateo County has a racism problem."

They gathered to testify, to mourn, and to demand change in the cities of San Mateo County. After the rally, they marched to the jail in downtown Redwood City.

The rally and march was sponsored by Silicon Valley Democratic Socialists of America (SVDSA), amongst others. A member of SVDSA said, "the most amazing part was at the jail when half the windows had prisoners looking down at us as we chanted and promised to be there for them...there's a lot we can do to support the people on hunger strike and in the jail in general."

The main organizers of the event were the San Mateo County Coalition for Immigrant Rights and the Real Community Coalition. Other groups involved included Justice for Chinedu and Redwood City Youth for Change.

Marisol's son sought addiction help. He was turned away for lack of space. But we know...the funds are there. They need to be diverted from police to community programs.
