The news has been maddening, depressing, heart-breaking. We need to stand together and say this has to stop. For those who want to respond to the tragic, senseless violence against the people of Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, here is the church website. You can donate either to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund to help the families of the nine victims with funeral expenses, or to the Reverend Pinckney Fund to help continue his work.
Meanwhile, back in San Francisco, we are putting together a stimulating panel of strong voices from various branches of the Black community, to meet and open up the conversation, and to offer folks in Potrero Hill a chance to learn and get involved in a way that is both meaningful and helpful. Panel participants have now been confirmed. Rheema Calloway, Stevon Cook, Dr. Joe Marshall, and Vanessa Moses will be joining us. Maxine Anderson will moderate. Audience Q&A, of course.
WHEN: Tuesday, July 7, at 7pm
WHERE: Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, 953 De Haro St @ Southern Hts
