The South Bay Progressive Alliance (of which 350 Silicon Valley is a member) is the primary organizer of a local event in downtown San Jose called "Rise Up for Justice." We are anticipating a number of local high schools to participate in peaceful walkouts Friday morning to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. Students, adults, and all members of the community concerned about the direction of America under a Trump Presidency are encouraged to join in a peaceful, lawful march and rally in San Jose.

We’ll gather at Plaza de César Chavez Park in San Jose at 11 am, then march a very short distance (just a couple of blocks) to the Federal Building where marchers will circle the building a couple of times beginning at 12 noon to 12:30 or so, then we’ll have a short march down the Paseo De San Antonio and end up at a rally in front of the San Jose City Hall, 200 E. Santa Clara Street.

This event that will be a strong message that we stand united for those progressive ideals (including climate justice) that are likely going to be under attack from the new administration and its climate change denying appointees.
