Impeach on the Beach

  • Ocean Beach Great Highway and Balboa Ave. San Francisco (map)

Join us at Ocean Beach (near the Cliff House) at 11:00 AM on Saturday June 1st as we help the legendary Brad Newsham create a brand new I-M-P-E-A-C-H human banner. The CA Democratic Convention and MoveOn’s presidential forum will be happening in San Francisco that weekend so every big name Democrat will be in town, including Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris & Kirsten Gillibrand.

The helicopter arrives at noon, so get there early and don’t miss out!

This is a great opportunity to make ourselves seen and heard, and immediately after the event we plan to head off to the MoveOn forum and the CA Dem event with our IMPEACH signs and banners - so BRING IMPEACH SIGNS AND BANNERS, & be prepared for a long and impeachful day!!!

This is peaceful, no-cost, family-friendly event, hosted by and organizer Brad Newsham.


NOTE: The above picture from January 2007 (the Bush/Cheney administration) shows 1,000 people lying down in 100-foot-tall lettering. Live footage from the helicopter went national on ABC News, then international on CNN.

At the upcoming June 1 event, 5,000 people will be standing upright to spell out "IMPEACH" in 150-foot-tall letters that will stretch 610 feet on Ocean Beach.


  • PLEASE RSVP either on Facebook or Eventbrite, so the hosts know how to plan.

  • Arrive via public transportation as possible (parking is quite limited at Ocean Beach).

  • Arrive by 11 a.m., take an information sheet from one of the volunteers, and follow the directions.

  • At noon, at least one helicopter and one photographer will be overhead to capture imagery that is sure to go viral.

  • Don't be late. Official completion time is 12:30, but these events usually finish early. If you arrive at 12:15, you will almost certainly have missed the whole event.

NOTE: On this same weekend, the California Democratic Party will be holding its annual convention in downtown San Francisco. Also in San Francisco on June 1, is hosting 2020 presidential candidates Julián Castro, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren (and perhaps others) in a Big Ideas Forum. Our June 1 “IMPEACH” will be huge, stretching the distance of two football fields, twice as far as the human banner of 2007, pictured above.
