Wed Sep 12 2012 Organizations Unite to Bring Attention to Killings by San Francisco Police
It's a Beautiful Day to Live in Bayview On August 19th, the Idriss Stelley Foundation (ISF) and the Kenneth Harding Jr. Foundation teamed up with POOR Magazine and Peoples Community Medics for a day of solidarity in Bayview/Hunter's Point in order to bring attention to the police accountability movement.

Early in the day, the Kenneth Harding Jr. Foundation held their monthly and largest community feed yet, providing lunch to more than 150 people. Denika Chatman, Kenny's mother, holds "Community Feeds" at the corner of 3rd and Oakdale in Bayview where she and allies give out bagged lunches to San Franciscans in need to raise awareness about the police murder of Kenneth Harding in 2011 for allegedly evading a $2 bus fare.

Later, the Idriss Stelley Foundation held its annual Birthday Cookout to celebrate what would have been Stelley's 35th Birthday. Idriss Stelley was murdered by the SFPD at the Sony Metreon Theater on June 12th, 2001 at only 23-years-old. Stelley's mother, Mesha Monge-Irizarry, an activist before her son's killing, has become one of the leading figures in the police accountability movement.
