Conservatorship, Mental Health & Homelessness: A Public Forum (San Francisco)

What is conservatorship? What does the mental health system look like in SF for homeless people? What is SB 1045 and why do so many mental health and civil rights organizations oppose it? How can we humanely and effectively address mental health conditions for people experiencing homelessness? 

Join us for a public forum on conservatorship, mental health, and homelessness on Thursday, 2/21 at St. John's Episcopal. A new law, SB 1045, is being considered in San Francisco which will endanger the civil liberties of homeless people with mental health conditions. 

Speakers include:
Jenny Friedenbach, Coalition on Homelessness
Susan Mizner, ACLU Disability Rights Program
David Elliott Lewis, Mental Health Association SF

An Evening with Gloria Steinem (San Francisco)

Hosted by Bay Area Book Festival and 3 others

An evening with Gloria Steinem: More Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, in conversation with Favianna Rodriguez and moderated/podcasted by Inflection Point’s Lauren Schiller.

What is Gloria Steinem thinking about today in our era of #MeToo and intersectionality? How can today’s feminists learn from our foremothers, and vice versa? We’ll celebrate an updated, third edition of Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, originally published in 1983 — a book that has sold over half a million copies, and counting. As author Susan Faludi (Backlash) put it, Outrageous Acts “will always be… a required feminist reader.” From satires to moving tributes, confessions (yes, the Playboy bunny essay is in here) and analyses, the book includes classics along with new material.

IF GLOBAL WARMING EXISTS, WHY IS IT SO COLD OUTSIDE? (San Francisco)

  • 110 The Embarcadero San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The world is warming, so why is the Midwest suffering record cold temperatures? How is global warming impacting oceans? What’s the connection between wildfires and climate change?

Climate science is complex, vast, and often difficult to understand. We’ll explain the fundamental basics you’ll need to answer friends and family who ask about climate change—or question if it’s even happening.

Join us for climate science 101 with communication gurus Ann Reid (National Center for Science Education) and David Fenton (Fenton Communications), along with science experts Ben Santer(UC Berkeley) and Katharine Mach (Stanford University), who will debunk common myths that arise from distortions of accepted science.

CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CHIEF TONY THURMOND (San Francisco)

Education Week magazine reported in 2017 that among all states, California’s K–12 public education ranked 41st in conditions that help children succeed, 39th in school finance and 30th in achievement. So what can we expect in 2019?

In a major upset against his opponent Marshall Tuck, Tony Thurmond was elected California State Superintendent of Public Instruction this past November. He was the endorsed candidate of the California Democratic Party and all five 2018 California Teachers of the Year. He previously represented the 15th Assembly District, which encompasses the northern East Bay. Thurmond became the second African-American to hold the office and fourth African-American to win statewide office in California following Wilson Riles. Prior to being elected to the Assembly in 2014, he was a member of the Richmond City Council, a board member of the West Contra Costa Unified School District and social services administrator. Come hear his plans for improving California’s schools.

Women For Forests: Online Training For Women for Climate Justice

Join WECAN International on APRIL 3rd for 'Women For Forests' - the first session in our series of 2019 Online Education & Advocacy Trainings For Women For Climate Justice!

ABOUT: Women from across the world are exposing the intertwined root causes of forest destruction, gender injustice, and economic domination. They are rising up to protect vital forests ecosystems from deforestation, agribusiness, and a host of other threats. Through their work, they are protecting irreplaceable biodiversity and the sources of community life and livelihoods, while also spearheading efforts that sequester massive amounts of carbon, and thus help mitigate against the worst effects of global climate change. 

During the ‘Women For Forests’ training, we will explore various topics including: resistance efforts by Indigenous women in Brazil to protect the Amazon; inspiring examples of women planting trees and regenerating damaged lands in the Democratic Republic of Congo; efforts to protect the Tongass rainforest in Alaska; international forest policy that respects the rights of Indigenous Peoples and addresses root causes of forest loss; and other stories and lessons from women’s work to stand for global forests.

As part of WECAN International’s commitment to a climate justice framework, this training will not promote any of the false solutions often associated with climate-forest programs, including carbon offsets and other market mechanisms. Rather, speakers will focus on the grassroots, community-driven, and rights-based strategies and solutions being demonstrated by women around the world.

WHEN: Wednesday April 3rd, 2019 at 11:00am PST/ 2:00pm EST (US time zones, please check your own time zone to participate.)

WHERE: This training will be hosted via Zoom, a free program similar to Skype. Check back for call-in information.

THE PENALTY FOR SUCCESS: MY FATHER WAS LYNCHED IN ALABAMA (San Francisco)

Monday Night Philosophy investigates the painful reality that succeeding in business is not always an advantage in America. Josephine Bolling McCall's father, Elmore Bolling, was a successful entrepreneur in Alabama. He was lynched outside Montgomery in 1947 when the author was five years old. In her book, The Penalty for Success, McCall tells the story of her father’s murder and the impact it had—and still has—on her family and her community. After years of research, including interviews with relatives and elderly Lowndes County residents, McCall found answers to many troubling questions. Her journey of discovery presents a revealing narrative of a time, a place and a people, challenging us to rethink the reality of life for both blacks and whites in the rural South during Jim Crow. Elmore Bolling was murdered because he was too prosperous to be a black man in Alabama. Even though he was not hanged, mutilated or burned in front of a crowd of people, he was “lynched” by being shot six times in the front of his body with a pistol and once in the back with a shotgun, reinforcing the legacy of racial terror that has yet to be adequately addressed in America.

Defend Public Education Rally (San Francisco)

In June of 2018 SF voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure (Prop G) in support of SF educators receiving a much needed salary add-on. Because of the way public education is funded in California, San Francisco is near the bottom when funds are allocated from the state. This, combined with the high cost of living in the Bay Area, has caused SFUSD to have a very difficult time both recruiting and retaining educators. Prop G was a community response to this issue. 

This staffing problem creates instability in the classrooms of our SFUSD children and families. Prop G though began to address the affordability crisis and resulted in SFUSD recruiting and retaining quality educators for the first time in many years. A few months ago a legal challenge was brought against Prop G and now this much needed funding for public education is at risk. 

We are hosting a rally on the steps of city hall to make sure that the Mayor and Board of Supervisors know that taking away our LWEA/Prop G add-ons is not an option! We need them to stand with public education and allocate $60 million to keep Prop G whole! Join fellow educators, parents, and community allies as we make our voices heard!

The History of Prisons in California (San Francisco)

California's prison system started as a privately-run barge anchored in the Bay, and was embroiled in corruption, political scandal, and violence. Since then, our system has grown to incarcerate more people than the population of Berkeley. Prisons represent the power of the state in its most raw and basic form, and 167 years later Californians are still confronting the same fundamental questions: Why do we incarcerate people, what happens when they leave, and can we do better?

Jared Rudolph is an attorney at the San Francisco Office of the Public Defender and the founder of Prisoner Reentry Network (prisonerreentrynetwork.org), a non-profit that supports successful transitions from incarceration to the community.
