[UPDATE: Due to scheduling conflicts, our program has changed. Instead of the announced program, we will feature Shahid Buttar, director of grassroots advocacy for the Electronic Freedom Frontier, followed by Dr. Anita Barzman and Dr. Nina Soares of Health Right 360, who will provide updates on the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic. Rosie Dilger, Ratepayer Advocate from the Department of Public Works will make an announcement about a proposed Recology rate change and provide an opportunity for public input.]

Many questions, thoughts and feelings are still undetermined and unsettled surrounding the introduction of uncomfortable and unacceptable executive orders coming from the commander-in-chief. We need some confidence about our near future and answers to our questions . . . like what’s going to happen next month?
