We will meet via Zoom to read and hear the UDHR; and as we read, participants will be encouraged to post relevant information and comments in the chat. We will follow the reading by hearing from 2 speakers who will describe how we are doing in regard to fulfilling the right to housing and food right here in San Francisco and what we can do to help. Finally, we will broaden the discussion to note what was posted in the chat and discuss how we are doing in SF in regard to fulfilling any or all of the other human rights enumerated in the UDHR; and what we can do to fulfill them in the future.
Our speakers on two rights listed in UDHR Article 25* will be:
1) On HOUSING: Sara Shortt Director of Public Policy & Community Organizing, Community Housing Partnership) and
2) On FOOD: Mary Risley of Food Runners; https://www.foodrunners.org/about/).
