GLIDE Church will have an official contingent in the MLK2020 March and Parade on Monday, January 20. GLIDE will gather at 9:00 am in the Caltrain Station Plaza (700 4th Street). March goes from the Caltrain Depot to Yerba Buena Gardens and lasts from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm. Dress warmly. Wear your GLIDE gear. Bring your family and friends.

Be there with us to march, remember, and press forward with the vision and demand for a just and equitable world for all people!

More about the march:

Join thousands in honoring the Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama marches at the MLK2020 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.
