Am sending articles, actions, & events in two parts. Part 1 will be Articles & Actions; Part 2 will be Events
PART 1 – Articles & Actions
Clark Sullivan transitioned in early July. He is known for livestreaming actions from his wheelchair on both sides of the bay.
A friend of his stated “…he always showed up in solidarity for all movements, communities and people.” He’s been active since the 1980’s.
Rest in Peace and Rise in Power
♥ Clark ‘Freeman’ Sullivan ♥
Mike Lee ‘Sam Spade’ transitioned in late July. He most recently has been known for his activism on homeless issues in the East Bay, and has been active in SF. His voice for advocacy in city halls, community meetings and participation in protest will be missed.
