Mayor's Message to the Community Re: Peaceful Demonstrations
“Over the last few days, we have seen individuals, community members, local leaders, and others coming together to demonstrate peacefully and stand for the common causes of equity and justice. At this time, I would like to acknowledge all of those as they continue their peaceful demonstrations. We respect the community’s right to protest in a safe and responsible way.
I also want to recognize the business owners, employees and municipalities who experienced the isolated, but significant events of destruction against their property. The City and the San Diego Sheriff’s Station will continue to support peaceful protests. We also intend to maintain the safety and health of our residents and businesses by keeping our streets safe and accessible for workers and first responders."
