D4 Virtual Town Hall: City Budget 101

Upper Great Highway & Sloat Blvd.,
**Please wear masks and keep to 6 feet social distancing**
Westside community, faith and labor groups are organizing a march to support AAPI's who have been rocked by hate crimes and racially motivated incidents including seniors, small businesses, and so many in our community. The recent violence that took the lives of working women in Atlanta is a call to action on behalf of Asian Americans. We share the sorrow from this unspeakable tragedy and the numerous incidents occurring close to home. Now is the time to organize toward a shared vision of community safety. Please join us at this March for AAPI Solidarity + Safety on Sunday, April 18th here on the westside of San Francisco.
