Hands Across Alameda
President’s Day: Monday, February 20, 3 PM
Alamedans are set to continue a tradition of inclusiveness as they cross the partisan divide by crossing hands together. Organized over social media and promoted by the City, this Monday, February 20, residents of Alameda and surrounding cities will meet along the Alameda beach to create a human chain.
“This is not a fundraiser,” remarked community organizer John-Michael Kyono. “It is simply a gesture of support and unity for all residents in Alameda and beyond.” 
Residents should gather along the shoreline in an effort to have the chain stretch as far and wide as possible. There will be four main meet-up locations:
  1. Crown Memorial Beach
  2. Grand Avenue at Shoreline
  3. Park Street at Shoreline
  4. Bay Trail in front of Harbor Bay Club
Monday, February 20 (President’s Day) at 3 PM
