MLK Park in the Bayview District of San Francisco @ 3rd St. and Carroll Ave. We’ll caravan to the corrupt Lennar development company “Welcome Center” at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, and from there to City Hall.
The Environmental Justice movement in Bayview Hunters Point is organizing a protest car caravan, to mobilize support for the BVHP community and to bring the attention of the wider San Francisco community and especially the city government to the historical and continuing environmental racism targeting the BVHP community. This action has been initiated by Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice, and BVHP Mothers and Fathers Committee. There is a great host of co-sponsors.
