Thousands turned out across San Francisco on Saturday to celebrate President-elect Joe Biden clinching the 2020 election.

Thousands turned out across San Francisco on Saturday to celebrate President-elect Joe Biden clinching the 2020 election.

From the Castro to Embarcadero, San Franciscans gathered in the streets to dance and cheer.

“I feel that it’s redemption and like the world spoke out against [President Donald] Trump,” said resident Mariana Mijangos. “It’s poetic justice. The more states that turn blue, the better it will be.”

Neil Stewart, 40, said he was overjoyed at the prospect of President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

“They have more realistic view on how our democracy should be,” said Stewart, a resident of San Francisco.

Myri Glentzer, 16, of Guerneville said celebrating the Biden victory felt amazing to be a part of history.

“I hope that the world keeps changing in this direction of equality,” Glentzer said.

At Embarcadero Plaza, hundreds gathered at a rally organized by Refuse Fascism Bay Area and labor groups.

After dancing to music and listening to speeches from local leaders, they marched up Market Street to Union Square to join up with engineers who have been on strike outside Macy’s.

Near the Golden Gate Bridge, a small group gathered as part of a rally and march organized by Vigil for Democracy to continue the work of the resistance and the Black Lives Matter movement. The protesters carried yellow umbrellas with the names of those killed by police written on them.

Michelle and Ashley Monterrosa showed up to honor their brother, Sean, who was shot and killed by Vallejo police in June.
