March for the Dead, Fight for the Living
Join us in a march across the Golden Gate Bridge that will honor the dead by fighting for the living. There are 1,000+ Americans are still dying every day. It doesn't have to be this way.
Meet at Crissy Field Warming Hut at 5:30 PM PT. Around 6 PM PT, we will march across the Golden Gate Bridge in solidarity with New Yorkers, who will be finishing their march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Several other cities are planning marches across their own iconic bridges at 6 o'clock their local time.
Wear yellow. Bring battery candles. Bring flowers or art to leave behind. Come early to write a loved one's name on a yellow umbrella to carry across the bridge.
Use hashtag #SFMarchForTheDead when posting about the event or sharing photos and video on social media afterwards. Whether you are able to march or not, please consider a donation for supplies, including yellow umbrellas and flowers.
