REMEMBERING OUR WAY FORWARD
On April 7th, 2018, we celebrated 20 years of living and working in the Tenderloin. We turned to our Ancestors to discover the wisdom we all need to move forward in trying times.
We celebrated with music performed by 130 singers under the direction of Mark Sumner, Music Director of the Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco, special readings rAmu Aki, Jesse Johnson, and Martha Boesing. Skywatchers, a Tenderloin performance ensemble, brought us a piece from "I got a truth to tell," one of their signature works which combines song, dance, and spoken word.
