Our upcoming April meeting will feature District 5 Supervisor, London Breed, who wasn’t able to make it to the last meeting. We hope to hear about her vision and plans for her new term as District 5 Supervisor and as the re-elected President of the Board. We look forward to hearing her views on the next four years, as well as on current events.
We are in important and somewhat dire times. Despite our State and local government officials' positions, which are frequently holding a strong stand in opposition to the Trump administration , we still will be affected by many of the antics of the man-in-charge and of a robust Republican Congress. Many questions, thoughts and feelings are still undetermined and unsettled even with the introductions of uncomfortable and unacceptable executive orders coming from the commander-in-chief. We need some answers and confidence about our near future...like what’s gonna happen tomorrow!
To address these issues, we've invited Attorney Amanda Keton, a board member from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Ms. Keton is also the General Counsel of the Tides Foundation and Managing Director of The Advocacy Fund. She will provide a current overview and outlook on the work they are doing plus give us some suggestions of what we can do here in the ‘hood and as a city.
Our general membership meeting will be held on Thursday, April 13, 7 pm, Park Branch Library, 1833 Page Street. As always, we welcome your lively and knowledgeable questions and comments for all the speakers. Also, please bring announcements of events and other happenings in the Haight Ashbury. We’ll post them on our website and promote them by email. See you soon.
