Whether you run, walk, roll or stroll, it doesn’t matter, come and spend your morning in community to raise the issues that affect each of our lives. Our event stands as a show of resistance, a reminder of our people power, and a commitment to find a way to challenge our representatives and leaders.
During his presidency, Trump ended DACA, rescinded TPS for Nicaraguans, Haitians, Hondurans, and Salvadorans, implemented a travel ban, and rallied against refugees. The reality is that this didn’t begin with Trump. This comes after centuries of colonization, genocide, displacement, and constant harrassment of our people.
Together let’s reclaim our sacred space and continue our legacy of resistance and ally support for all of our undocumented, black, Muslim, wombyn, and queer brothers and sisters who have been victimized, brutalized, and criminalized.
We honor everyone who has been separated from their loved ones; we call for policy shifts and awareness of vulnerable migrant groups; we demand migrant justice and NO MORE WALLS. Bring the issues that you are passionate about and lift them up with us.
By joining the run, you are supporting the leadership of the 67 Sueños youth and the future they will help create. Our leaders are undocumented or come from mixed-status families. Now more than ever we must hear and follow the direction of our impacted youth.
ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE IS WELCOME AND INVITED, including your furry best friend!
All funding supports 67 Sueños in its ongoing work to train and empower youth leaders from our San Francisco and Oakland high school students.
Individual: $25 // Team of 10 runners: $100
