About 30 people gathered in a parking lot on Friday near the shuttered Fort Mason to protest a proposal for the City College of San Francisco Board of Trustees to end a lease for the college’s Fort Mason campus, which primarily provides art classes and older adult programs.

The rally was preceded by a caravan outside the Mission campus to call attention to the potential loss of classes for ESL students.

The CCSF board is expected to vote on the Fort Mason campus lease later this month.
