Dare to Take the Scare Out of Halloween
CMAC Launches Campaign Calling for a Violence-Free Halloween
Join the California Music and Culture Association (CMAC) in calling for a Violence-Free Halloween to better ensure the safety of our community and to put the fun back into one of San Francisco's greatest public traditions. Halloween has long been a time for San Franciscans to parade their diversity and tolerance through culture and music. We encourage residents, neighbors, and visitors to join us in reaffirming this tradition and to "Say No (please)" to those that would mar this event with senseless violence.
Violence is any act which is intended to intimidate, annoy, or alarm another person; or any act which is intended to cause pain or injury to, or which is intended to result in physical or personal contact which will be insulting or offensive to another, coupled with the apparent ability to execute the act.
We stand with CMAC in encouraging revelers to:
- Leave your weapons at home!
- Leave the "Guy that Likes to Fight" at home too
- Be tolerant of other lifestyles and beliefs
- Treat others with respect, courtesy, and dignity
- Celebrate responsibly
Violence damages the physical and emotional well being of our community, the economic vitality of our collective identity, and the reputation of the City and County of San Francisco. CMAC is committed to a Violence-Free Halloween — a Halloween enjoyed by all, free from threat and intimidation. Join us in making this possible.
