Hundreds of students marched, chanted, sang and danced their way along Third Street from the Bayview Opera House three miles down to San Francisco Police headquarters in Mission Bay in a Black Lives Matter march in solidarity with police victims across the country to deliver a message to defund the police and stop the over policing of black and brown communities. The march was organized by the Black Student Union of Academy at McAteer and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts.
