On Monday, August 26, 2019, GLIDE will host a Reflection and Reconciliation Session on the 53rd anniversary of the Compton’s Cafeteria Riot. The 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Riot inspired the LGBTQ liberation movement and highlighted unjust laws and the mistreatment of the LGBTQ community by law enforcement.
For decades, GLIDE has been at the forefront of advocating for vulnerable and marginalized communities in our City. This gathering- the first of a planned series of listening sessions- will provide a forum for the LGBTQ community to share their stories and offer ways to increase trust and communication with SFPD; moving the department forward in ways that emphasize respect, safety and diversity.
Please join San Francisco Police Chief William Scott, command staff and department and community members for this listening session.

This session will be streamed live on SFPD’s Facebook page and recorded for later broadcast on SFGovTV.
