On November 1st, 2017, Pillars of the Community was honored to welcome activist and leader, Linda Sarsour. 

After a day spent at our storefronts in Southeast, Linda shared with a group of Pillars' supporters about why our work matters and is especially crucial during this time in our nation's history. 

As an installment of The California Endowment's #SchoolsNotPrisons tour, Wanna Be Free: The Concert For the People, was an event to celebrate the unity and strength of San Diego's communities of color. 

It’s undeniable that we live in a country built on oppression and white privilege. However, moments in history teach us that organized efforts to improve our lives can work. In San Diego, together, we can fight systems of oppression, such as police brutality, gang documentation, and mass incarceration.

Together we celebrated the value of unity as we demand freedom and justice for all

San Diegans! Big thank you to Vincent Vega Fuentebella for these gorgeous photos.
