1. Tuesday, 3:00pm, Press conference: Families of Patients Threatened by Closure of St Luke’s Hospital Subacute Unit Speak Out
SF City Hall
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Place
4:00pm Health Commission hearing.
Families of twenty-four severely ill patients at the St. Luke’s Hospital Subacute Unit, who face life-threatening transfers to far-away facilities, will tell their harrowing stories
St. Luke’s owner, California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC), has announced the closure of all 79 Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) beds, including 40 subacute beds at St. Luke’s for October 31. These are the last Subacute Skilled Nursing beds in San Francisco. Twenty-four extremely fragile ventilator-dependent patients are left, and CPMC is insisting on evicting them even though the closest comparable facilities are as far away as San Jose or even Los Angeles.
The afflicted families, city leaders, nurses, and community groups that support them will be speaking at this press conference shortly before they testify at a San Francisco Health Commission meeting.
CPMC’s CEO, Warren Browner, insisted that there is no room for subacute patients in CPMC’s new 274-bed Cathedral Hospital or the new 120-bed St. Luke’s Hospital. The Health Commission told Browner to come back to the next meeting on September 5, with a better plan. No plan has been put forward.
At its 4 PM meeting September 5, the Health Commission will rule whether CPMC’s closure of the St. Luke’s Skilled Nursing Facility, including the subacute unit, will have a detrimental effect on San Francisco’s health.

10. Saturday, 2:00pm, DEFEND DACA!
Oscar Grant Plaza
1 Frank H. Ogawa Plz. (nr. 12th Street BART)
*** NOTE: This will be a RADICAL space. ICE officers, police, deportation service members, etc. ARE NOT WELCOME. And folks who support them are not welcome either. We are planning on creating a safe and inclusive environment–anyone who supports or is apart of law enforcement or other deportation services will disrupt the space that we are aiming to create. Be cautious and defend those under attack at whatever means necessary. ***
Immigrants have been under attack within Amerikkka for decades, now–it’s nothing new. However, the Trump Administration has recently sent out and initiated threats on our undocumented siblings, and it’s time that we show them solidarity and fight back against the normalization of Trump’s cruelty and bigotry.
We must show up as a community in solidarity with those who are targeted by the threats on DACA made by Trump; and we must resist the hateful, misinformed actions that this administration is taking to further marginalize and oppress our fellow citizens. Ending DACA will affect over 11 million children—we must be prepared and ready to mobilize the SECOND one of their lives is under attack.
We invite all undacamented folks, families and allies to join us in a rally and march to show love and support for #DACA. We must show those affected that we stand with them, and those making the decision that we’ve already made it for them. We are here to stay!
Please join us, this will be a peaceful demonstration centered around showing endless support and love for our community members who are under attack by this administration and ICE.
If you are able to help provide bottled water/granola bars, OR if you or someone you know would be fit to speak at the rally, please contact
