Japantown Cultural District
“Land Use & Environmental Resilience” Focus Group

Property Owners, Merchants, Community Members, Residents, are especially encouraged to attend! 

Your ideas and input are Essential.

Tomorrow, we will dive into the important topic of “Land Use & Environmental Resilience,” how we as a community can organize, and develop tools and programs such as land use controls to promote, protect, and sustain the Japantown as a culturally rich, authentic, and economically vibrant neighborhood which will serve as the cultural heart of Japanese & Japanese Americans for generations to come.

 We have an opportunity to voice our common vision, and be heard, then actualized through the CHHESS report.

Castro District
A March to Remember & Reignite Hope

Hosted by Juanita MORE!, the GLBT Historical Society,
and the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District
Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 2 PM – 4 PM

LGBTQ leaders, and neighborhood organizations, historians, activists, and community members will gather at Harvey Milk Plaza and march through the Castro, laying black wreaths at the sites of shuttered queer spaces in the historic LGBTQ district. Participants will call on elected officials, foundations and philanthropists, venture capitalists as well as residents and lovers of San Francisco, to both commemorate the city’s LGBTQ vibrant past and inspire a brighter future.

With the growing number of vacancies in the Castro District, we need to take active steps to sustain the city’s living queer heritage and culture. The march will begin at Harvey Milk Plaza and conclude at Lookout.
