The Bay Area Protests, Vigils + Political Gatherings You Need to Know About Now

Calling all professional protesters and amateurs alike.

In these post-election days, Bay Area progressives have dusted off their marching boots in renewed droves and headed bravely into the fray to stand up for love, equality, human decency, and justice. Some of you have asked us how you can stay in the know about the various rallies, peaceful demonstrations, candlelight vigils, and gatherings, so we’ve put together this calendar for upcoming Bay Area events. Of course, many of these events will have to do with the recent presidential election, however, in the longtime spirit of San Francisco and its surrounds, we’ll sprinkle in important demonstrations of other kinds—whether you stand for Standing Rock or take to the streets for Black Lives Matter.

Please consider this list only the start—we will update it as we learn of new happenings and let the old ones roll off. We also really hope you’ll contribute your suggestions. If you have a hot tip, please email edit at 7×7 dot com with the subject line DEMOCRACY(more)
