Journalist Denise Sullivan in conversation
with Kasey Rios, resilience/community/fair wages

San Francisco journalist Denise Sullivan conducts a monthly series of conversations (the second Sunday of each month from 10-11 a.m.) with The City’s activists, educators, arts and cultural leaders and community workers, the everyday people who help make this place we call home, live streamed from Bird & Beckett Books.

From the Bright Sounds Apprenticeship Program, training future sound and recording engineers at Hyde Street Studios to the annual Grace Notes Community Festival activating venues, artists and workers in the Tenderloin from July through October, Rios has joined the Independent Musicians Alliance in seeking fair wages and working conditions for music professionals.
