Get Ready for November

GLIDE’s mission is to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to break the cycles of poverty and marginalization, and this November, it’s getting very real.

Cecil_039GLIDE has advocated for positive change throughout its over fifty year history. Starting with programs like Citizen’s Alert (1965) that sought to investigate charges of police brutality and support victims, GLIDE has been committed to speaking the truth as the voice of the people of San Francisco.  GLIDE is getting real for this November election – issues of vital community importance are being addressed in San Francisco’s upcoming ballot.   Glide12-294 We want to affirm our commitment to these issues:

  1. Creating and Maintaining Affordable Housing
  2. Reforming Our Broken Criminal Justice System
  3. Assuring Living Wages and Inclusiveness
  4. Supporting the Youth, Children and Families in Our Community

Glide Memorial ChurchKids Toys Give AwayWe have witnessed, through the media or the struggles we and those close to us have endured, the devastation of San Francisco’s housing crisis. We have witnessed how criminal prosecution and sentencing disproportionately targets communities of color, stigmatizing young men and women with records that may follow them for a lifetime, in many cases for minor offenses. We see how hard working people struggle to support themselves with low wages and high rents, sharing modest accomodations in sub-par conditions, seeking refuge in shelters and on friends’ couches or housed but cannot afford their next meal. We know how children exposed to tremendous societal and economic barriers such as these do not receive the resources they need to succeed.

Cecil45th prep2-443In order to break through these barriers, these years of pain and fear, we need to share our stories and speak our truths: to legislators, to the ballot box and perhaps most of all to each other.

This is why GLIDE will be sharing our stories and our insights into how we can make this place we call home better for every one of us, on this November Ballot and beyond.  Look for our upcoming endorsements of specific measures, join our political actions, get out your vote, and contact us to find out more about how you can volunteer to help at (415) 674-6081 or email

Let’s get started.

GLIDE Church invites you to stand up for smart, sensible gun control laws at the San Francisco March For Our Lives Rally on Saturday, March 24!
WHO: GLIDE Church. And YOU!
WHAT: SF March For Our Lives
WHERE: We will meet at GLIDE at noon and then walk over to Civic Center Plaza together as a group.
WHY: Our children should not have to live in fear of gun violence AT ALL, much less at school. Our teachers should not have to add "taking a bullet" to their job descriptions. We raise our voices in solidarity and demand a safer, more peaceful future for our children, our teachers and our country.
WHEN: Saturday, March 24. The rally starts at 1:00 pm, but we will meet at GLIDE at noon!
Additionally, we will make posters for the rally THIS SUNDAY on March 18 after the 11:00 am Celebration.
If you have any questions, please contact our beloved Rev. Angela Brown at
#ENOUGH #Guncontrol #gunsense #safeschools #parkland #columbine #LasVegas #marchforourlives  @womensmarch @womensmarchbayarea @momsdemand @gabbygiffords @100daysaction @bayresistance @glidefycc @kaye_foster @everytown On Wednesday, the children & teachers from GLIDE's Family, Youth & Childcare Center (FYCC) joined thousands of other students across the nation in the #NationalSchoolWalkout. Our FYCC teachers stress the importance of being community-minded thinkers and global citizens. Demanding #GunControlNow and safety in our schools is an important lesson for our kids, as well as a compassionate and powerful act of solidarity with the #Parklandhighschool students & all victims of school shootings.
Gun control is also a crucial advocacy issue for GLIDE — fighting for our children's education, well-being and their very lives is a direct application of our values and one of the most meaningful efforts to get involved in today.

Much love and support to FYCC and to all the young people across the country who raised their fists in defiance, resistance and mourning. We are with you.
