Comrades,

Join us in commemorating Pride by exploring the history of queer activism in San Francisco tomorrow, June 23, from 6:00 — 7:00 p.m. There will be a lecture and discussion covering our city’s queer history, including the significance behind the Compton’s Cafeteria in the Tenderloin, how our understanding of LGBTQ+ issues has evolved over time, and how all of this intersects with capitalism and other forms of oppression today. Register here.

Sincerely,

🌹 DSA SF Communications Committee

Announcements

New from SFIJ

🌹 Over 50 Dandelion Chocolate employees, union members, city elected officials such as Supervisors Dean Preston and Connie Chan, and union supporters came out to a rally to demand CEO Todd Masonis to hire the workers back for unionizing.

🌹 The fight to make SF’s Muni free for riders has staunch supporters within City Hall, but failed by a single vote to overcome the Mayor’s veto. Supervisor Myrna Melgar was the only one voting “no”, despite 91% of her district supporting free Muni.
