But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Sunday, April 10 – 10am
SF Lives Live Talk (live streamed)
Kelley Cutler, Human Rights Organizer
with the SF Coalition on Homelessness,
in conversation journalist Denise Sullivan

Kelley Cutler has worked with the unhoused population in San Francisco for the last 20 years. She accompanied Lelani Farha, United Nations special rapporteur on adequate housing, on Farha’s 2018 visit to San Francisco to observe and assess the human rights emergencies on our streets. From that visit, Farha found the City to be in violation of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Read journalist Denise Sullivan’s January 2022 SF Examiner piece on the recent Tenderloin Emergency Plan, drawing on insights from Cutler and other activists, at this link.

In a live stream from Bird & Beckett Sunday, 4/10/22, at 10 a.m., Cutler and Sullivan will discuss the current situation.

The live stream can be found on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel or Facebook page. The conversation will stay up on both platforms for viewing after the fact as well.

Denise Sullivan presents a live-streamed series of morning discussions with The City’s arts and cultural leaders and everyday workers, the people who help make this place we call home, every second Sunday at 10 am from Bird & Beckett Books in Glen Park.

The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
