SDA News

SDA is growing up and going through some big changes! Some staff are leaving for grad school or other jobs, and we’re going through an Executive Director transition. SDA will continue our work in the community and are grateful to all our members and community partners for your support and help. Please reach out if you have questions!

A message from SDA’s outgoing Executive Director Jessica Lehman and Board President Betty Traynor can be found here.

Please come to Jessica’s send-off party on Thursday, June 15, 5-7 pm, at Monarch Gardens, 428 11th Street, San Francisco. The party will be outdoors and is wheelchair accessible. RSVP at https://bit.ly/jessicajune15. Contact Sarah at sarah@sdaction.org for more information. 

What you can do right now:

Speak up to keep remote public comment at San Francisco government meetings! We won at the Board of Supervisors but need to work on the SFMTA and other groups. Call or email your supervisor to let them know how important it is that seniors, disabled people, working people, parents, and others can call in for public comment. See talking points at bit.ly/KeepRemoteAccess. You can also fill out this survey about remote participation.

Listen to a radio show on KQED Forum about the crisis at Laguna Honda Hospital. Call on the City & County of San Francisco to expand home & community-based services (HCBS) so that people have alternatives to skilled nursing facilities and other institutions. Laguna Honda residents (and all nursing home residents) have the rights to ask for a placement to community, with all needed supports. Click here for more information.

Watch the video of SDA members talking about social media advocacy! Thanks to AARP California for funding this project.
