Sat June 23 at 10:00 AM, Justin Herman Plaza, meet at Vaillancourt Fountain
1 Market St, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's meet at the Vaillancourt Fountain at 10:00 and join the rally at Justin Herman Plaza. Rally runs from 10 - 11:30, so we can walk or BART someplace for lunch afterwards if anybody wants. Facebook event page here for more details. The pin in the map is wrong - stupid map won't display properly if I edit this post, so ignore it and meet at the fountain.
Co-sponsored by Indivisible SF, the Women's March, and a whole bunch of other organizations. This is a rally, not a march. (There will be a march the following weekend - let's join that too!)

Hope to see you there.

So I'm doubly a dope because

1. it should say let's meet at 10, not at 10:30
2. I can't fix it myself without screwing up the map

Hopefully a kind mod will be along soon to clean up my mess.

Here's the info for the 30th, from MoveOn:

Families Belong Together Bay Area

Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families. But we won't allow it to continue. On June 30, we're rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
A mass rally and march to protest this government’s inhumane and evil immigration policies, in particular the separation of children from their families. Come and register your disgust and your determination to change this barbaric policy. *** There is also a Families Belong Together rally planned for Saturday 23rd June at 10:00am at Justin Herman Plaza / Embarcadero SF. Please try to attend that event as well.

Saturday, June 30 at 11 a.m. (local time)
Civic Center Plaza
San Francisco, CA 94102

Thanks, lazuli - do you want to post that as an IRL event?

I would like to attend on the 30th (can't do it for the 23rd), but given that I live far-ish away (and especially because I've been out of SF long enough that I can't answer any logistical questions), I don't know that I want to set myself up as organizer. If someone else would like to post it, definitely feel free! I'll attend either way, but I'd love to have a MeFi group to attend with.

OK, lazuli, I will post the march on the 30th as another meetup.

In the meantime, the rally on the 23rd is still on despite the recent executive order (y'know, the one that sets up bigger cages).

Also, there's a Pride event starting in Civic Center at noon, so anybody who wants to stroll down Market Street can catch that after the Families rally. And anybody who was planning to attend the Pride event can maybe swing past Embarcadero a little earlier and add another warm body to the Families rally.

Mag Plug and I are at the fountain in a little shady spot near the back. I’m wearing a tan hat with a green ribbon

I’m moving to the edge of the crowd. Still wearing the hat

Sorry I missed you two! I arrived a little late and ended up in a shady spot behind the stage.
