One person reported that such haters are planning to come to Chrissy Field on August 26. She urged people to call officials at the following phone numbers and urge them not to allow this.
415-561-4302; 415-561-4301; 415-5614373.

San Francisco is one of the most segregated parts of the country. Look around your workplace. If you don't see black, or brown, or trans faces, what are you going to do to change it?
