Resolution to Save Street Fairs!

Street fairs are one of the great civic institutions of San Francisco but in recent months they've come under considerable fire - the sale of alcohol was banned at the 40th anniversary of the Haight Street Fair, which seems to be an overture for its demise, and this will be the last year for the How Weird Street Faire, which fell to demands of the condo elite to "get their Sunday back." However, tomorrow the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee will be voting to adopt a resolution to save street fairs. If you are a member of the Democratic party, try to attend their meeting and let them know how you want the vote to go. For more details, check out the agenda on the SFCDCC website. Here's the info on the meeting:

Wednesday 4/25
7 p.m. (public comment is at the beginning of the meeting so you can speak and leave)
African American Arts and Culture Complex, 762 Fulton St.
