Your Call: How should the Bay Area respond to this weekend's white supremacist rallies?

Aug 23, 2017


What’s the best response to this weekend’s rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley, which are expected to attract white supremacists and armed militia groups?

On Tuesday, the National Park Service gave final approval for Saturday's Crissy Field rally. A number of items will not be allowed, including guns, weapons, helmets, or pepper spray. The entire police force will be working during Saturday’s rally.

How should we stand up against the kind of racism and violence we saw in Charlottesville?
