We mobilize and educate seniors and people with disabilities to fight for individual rights and social justice. Through individual support and collective action, we work together to create a city and world in which seniors and people with disabilities can live well and safely. See our video below.
Participate in Giving Tuesday!
Help SDA match a Computer Lab upgrade grant, win Free Muni for seniors and people with disabilities, and fund a Housing Stories Project!
While December brings a focus on buying things, there is a move to highlight giving to the organizations that make a difference in your community. The idea of Giving Tuesday is to follow the buying frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday by setting aside the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (December 2) to donate to groups you care about. Please consider a donation of $10-25 to SDA. Please click on the logo on the right to donate.
What will your donation pay for?
- We need to upgrade our Computer Lab to make it accessible for people with hearing, vision, cognitive, or mobility disabilities, so that all may have the opportunity to communicate with friends and family, research health information, or apply for housing or benefits. The Newhall Foundation has offered us $10,000 for equipment, training and outreach – but only if we raise a $10,000 match! Please help us meet our goal and not gave to give back money needed to connect seniors and people with disabilities.
- This year we can win Free Muni for low-income seniors and people with disabilities! We must reach out and organize seniors and people with disabilities to show the MTA, Mayor Lee and our Board of Supervisors that Free Muni is critical in this time to growing economic disparity to ensure that we can all get to doctor’s appointments and the grocery store and participate in public life.
- As we continue the fight to stop evictions and displacement of seniors and people with disabilities, it is important to show the face of this issue. Our talented writer/artist Tony Robles skillfully leads storytelling and writing workshops, eliciting rich life stories from people in our community. Help fund a Housing Stories Project to bring together seniors and people with disabilities, shed light on the lives that are so often ignored or forgotten, and develop advocates to effect housing policy change.
Please take part in Giving Tuesday (December 2) and donate $10-25 (or more if you are able). This fundraising campaign will continue until December 31. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Mail to: 1360 Mission St. #400, SF CA 94103, or click on Donate Now.
You can also support SDA as you buy holiday gifts for others! If you shop at Amazon, go to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-3213120 (or click on the right). A portion of each sale will go to SDA to fund the Computer Lab, Free Muni, and Housing Stories Project.
