SF Lives Live Talk:
Third Parent’s Daveea Whitmire
in conversation with journalist Denise Sullivan

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 lesser-known workers, the everyday people who help make this place we call home, live streamed from Bird & Beckett Books.

August 14th, at 10 a.m., Denise and Daveea Whitmire, co-founder of Third Parent Family, a community resource hub, established at the end of 2019, will have a conversation from our stage in a live stream viewable on the Bird & Beckett Facebook page and YouTube channel.

During the pandemic, the need for Third Parent Family’s services, whether grocery and meal delivery or other needs were in high demand, especially within the African American community, will talk. Cutting through red tape of social services has been the organization’s special gift. With partner organizations and volunteers standing by to assist, we’ll hear from Whitmire about how the grassroots organization he helms with his partner, Whitney White, came to be and how to access its services – immediately.
