San Francisco and Mayor Ed Lee will host the 83rd U.S. Conference of Mayors summer session June 19-22, 2015, the first time since 1997. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, about 200 mayors from across the country are expected to attend, along with 200 to 300 support staff and roughly the same amount of corporate sponsors. Mayors also often bring their spouses and families to the summer meeting. The San Francisco meeting will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel. Join CODEPINK as we greet the Mayors with a creative action, hug-in, walk on the Golden Gate Bridge and community march!

For over 13 years CODEPINK has worked to end US war and militarized aggression throughout the world.   More and more we are seeing the weapons of occupations aboard finding their way into our communities right here in the US. As a result of the failed 'drug wars' and hysteria in no small part fueled by FBI-organized cases of entrapment of so-called 'terrorists', we have witnessed the militarization of our local police departments with 'excess equipment' and funding from the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
