Mayor Ed Lee will be hosting the 83rd U.S. Conference of Mayors June 19 – June 22, in San Francisco.
Action Council is focusing on creating events around their meeting.
This is an opportunity to raise issues locally and nationally that are of concern to us, THE PEOPLE, that the mayors have resisted and refused to act upon – or acted against the interest of The People. For instance: “Black Lives Matter”, police militarization and excessive use of force, gentrification of our communities, homelessness, racism, immigration, privatization of our commons, homophobia, trans-phobia, environment, the People’s taxes being spent on wars enriching the 1% and not serving the people and more.
All are welcome to help plan for action(s) as equal participants. OccupySF Action Council is merely acting as a central hub for organizational purposes.

If you are not able to attend meetings, please feel free to send someone(s) who represents your organization / interest.

M 26, Thursday, 6:00pm, Plaza 16 Community Meeting at Marshall Elementary School
Marshall Elementary School
1575 – 15th Street @ Capp St.
Next community meeting will be held at Marshall Elementary, the school adjacent to the proposed Maximus monster. The Maximus project would cast a shadow over the School for most of the year and the 18 months of construction would be terribly disruptive to the students’ learning environment.
Parents at the school need our support in resisting the project and they need our help convincing the School Board that it mustn’t help facilitate the project by making a deal with Maximus.
At the March meeting we will continue the community-driven process for developing a community-serving vision for 16th and Mission and will we discuss our next community actions, etc.
Host: Plaza 16 Coalition

Join us for an evening of spoken word, youth produced Black and Brown Unity art, elders, young-stars and great food!!!
As we mourn and organize around the unjust killings of Alex Nieto and Alan Blueford here in the Bay Area, so many more of our Black and Brown relatives across the nation echo our cries for justice for all who have lost their lives to the violence of the Police, Border Patrol and the state. At 67 Sueños we have dedicated a year’s worth of Art, Poetry and action to the power of Black Brown Unity as a response. Our poems, art and love must overcome their guns, tasers and hate!
We invite our community of Black and Brown beautiful people and our staunch allies to come celebrate Black and Brown Unity, honor some of our elders, celebrate and nurture our next generation of leaders and raise the funds for 67 Sueños next summer mural project in Oakland.
We need you to nurture and water the seeds that will grow to transform this hateful violent society into a place of love where Black and Brown lives don’t only matter, they are deemed precious!
P.S. We will have some of the most amazing Auction and Raffle items available to help you help us. So bring your checkbook, bring a friend and bring the LOVE cuz this is our 5th generation of 67 Sueños young-stars coming of age before your very eyes on stage!
Donations will be taken at the door but absolutely no one turned away for lack of funds.
If you wish to donate an item for our silent auction please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
M 27, Friday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, Next Nightwalk led by Danzantes Xitlali
The Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist
1661 – 15th Street
About Mission Nightwalks: Whether it’s 14-year-old Rashawn Williams stabbed to death in our neighborhood, or City College student Alex Nieto killed by San Francisco Police, too many of our neighbors have been needlessly killed or injured, and others sent to prison. Too many parents have shed too many tears.
So twice each month, faith communities in San Francisco’s Mission District walk the streets of our neighborhood where violence has occurred.
Along the way, we stop to listen to the stories of our neighbors, sometimes talk with family and friends of those killed, and often pray for both the victims and the perpetrators of the violence.
In our Nightwalks, we hope to bring not only comfort, but also a challenge — to ourselves, our neighbors, and our City — to uproot the causes of that violence, whether it is done by individuals, gangs, or law enforcement.
