The University of San Francisco’s Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good presents the Infinite San Francisco event series.
 The purpose of these events is to explore and celebrate unique aspects of some of San Francisco’s neighborhoods, including the Tenderloin, Mission, Western Addition, Bayview, and Chinatown.  Participants will learn about neighborhood histories, demographics, assets, dilemmas and opportunities from a panel of local historians, community activists, service providers, and USF faculty.  Engage in dialogue around timely issues and enduring themes that shape and complicate our perceptions of, and relationships with, our community. 

 What: Infinite San Francisco Event Series Kickoff: Celebrating the Tenderloin
 When: October 6, 2011, 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Where: The University of San Francisco campus, McLaren 250
 The event includes panel conversation, round table discussions, and networking lunch.
