In 1963, Rev. Cecil Williams and his wife Janice Mirikitani helped transform a Methodist church on the corner of Ellis and Taylor into one of the largest centers for social justice in Northern California. In addition to providing nearly 750,000 meals every year for the City’s homeless population, GLIDE Memorial Church has also led the charge on performing same-sex marriages and maintained a world renown gospel choir. At this years’ GLIDE Annual Holiday Festival, celebrate fifty years of service from Williams and Mirikitani that helped transform social justice, and founded an institution that remains a vital part of San Francisco to this day, with a benefit concert featuring Maya Angelou, Valerie Simpson and Judith Hill, along with the San Francisco Taiko drummers and Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers.
