Anti-Gentrification Meeting for WORST OF SF 2008
by Worst of SF www.worstofsf.org (info [at] worstofsf.org)
Thursday Jun 12th, 2008 2:16 AM
Planning meeting for the massive mock awards ceremony WORST OF SF 2008 on June 21st!
Tired of paying $1000's of month in rent on an ever-increasing scale?
Tired of seeing upper-class yuppies transforming our beautiful communities into identical condo-complexes with industrial architectural ambiguity?
Tired of being a slave to your landlord's pocketbook?

So are we!

Come help take part in the WORST OF SF mock awards ceremony this month! We are a grass-roots coalition developing community awareness around SF GENTRIFICATION: the process of moving out hard-working people from this beautiful city in the name of corporate land-owning greed! Join in solidarity to bring this hushed-up issue to the full limelight and save the community and unique artistic beauty that is SF!

WHEN: Saturday, JUNE 14th 2pm
WHERE: 584A Castro Street
WHAT: Developing ideas and nominations to put the city's worst gentrifiers to shame! Organizing a mock awards ceremony (June 21st) to expose landowner greed and bring this vital issue to the public eye. There will be live music, costumes, drag, and more! But we need your help to build this event and make it phenomenal to grab public attention for this vital community struggle!

This is a FREE planning event- just bring your thoughts, ideas, and interest!

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
