Glide Memorial Church was a rallying point against the Vietnam War in the 1960s and '70s, a locus for the counterculture movement sweeping across San Francisco, and a center in the fight against racial discrimination. Glide has been a pioneer in fighting AIDS, drug abuse, and hunger in San Francisco, and attained iconic status as celebrities from Maya Angelou to Bill Clinton regularly visit to praise its humanitarian work. Staffed by local volunteers who specialize in medicine, psychiatry, and nursing, Glide Memorial Church has become a model of a compassionate church that has shaped the community. Today Glide Memorial rallies against poverty, discrimination, and social inequity in San Francisco. Its stated goal is to build a "church without walls" and to reach out to all individuals regardless of race, gender, or sexual preference.
