Center for Social Justice: Advocacy Roundup  

A critical part of GLIDE’s work as a social justice organization is to drive systems change by shaping policies that have the greatest impact on the lives of those we serve. Our Center for Social Justice is influencing policy in the fields of housing and homelessness; community health; racial justice and reconciliation; and intergenerational support for women and families of color. In the first installment of the CSJ Advocacy Roundup, we share some of the top policy issues in the focus areas of community health and racial justice.


A Space to Draw: Self-discovery through art forms  

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, Toby Simon sets up her tent and art supplies on the Tenderloin Hub, providing a class to the community that is aptly named, “A Space to Draw.” At surface level, the art class explores different forms of drawing and technique, allowing students to build upon their skills. But for many of the participants, A Space to Draw dually provides a space for healing, self-discovery, and reflection.
