San Francisco Cultural Districts Walking Tours
October 20 | 2:00–5:00 pm Pacific
San Francisco is home to a Cultural Districts program whereby neighborhood-based community groups lead each District's efforts to preserve, stregthen, and promote cultural communities. The program aims to support groups that have been historically discriminated against, displaced, and oppressed. You can learn more about how the Cultural Districts work here. NCFP is pleased to partner with leaders of four of the Districts to host walking tours for attendees of the National Forum.
Please note that attending a tour will be in lieu of attending a block of concurrent sessions. Space is limited to 12 attendees per tour and registration is required.
Many thanks to Sparks, CEO of the Masto Foundation, for connecting us with community leaders to organize these tours.
The Transgender District
Thursday, October 20 | 2:00-5:00pm Pacific
The mission of the Transgender District is to create an urban environment that fosters the rich history, culture, legacy, and empowerment of transgender people and its deep roots in the southeastern Tenderloin neighborhood. As the first and only Transgender District in the Nation, the transgender district aims to financially empower, uplift, highlight, as well as to create equitable policy and protections for transgender and gender-expansive individuals.
We would love to share with you what that would include and would like to formally invite you for a site visit of both the Transgender District's office and the neighborhood we serve. During your site visit, the Transgender District team will provide key details of our organizational programs, arts and culture ventures, and social justice initiatives. Many of the individuals we work towards helping live in less than ideal housing or are directly homeless. The neighborhood conditions are nothing to shy away from; they are very real and telling of the larger issues faced by our community.
Please join us in our efforts toward making the world a better place for all Transgender people!
