This election is one of the most difficult elections we’ve ever faced, and we’re all in a lot of pain. Come meet at Dolores park for hugs and community support, including at least one giant group hug, to spread the love and remind each other that we are here for one another as one family.

Look for folks carrying a sign that says “Group Hug”

This is an open invitation, so invite everyone you can! Let’s get the biggest group hug you can imagine!


Estas elecciones son una de las elecciones más difíciles que hemos enfrentado, y todos estamos sufriendo mucho. Venga a reunirse en el parque Dolores para abrazos y apoyo de la comunidad, incluyendo al menos un abrazo de grupo gigante, para difundir el amor y recordar a los demás que estamos aquí para el uno al otro como una familia.

Busque a gente que lleva una muestra que diga el “abrazo del grupo”

¡Esto es una invitación abierta, así que invite a todos que usted puede! Vamos a obtener el abrazo de grupo más grande que te puedas imaginar!
