Shaun Haines - April 2018 Newsletter:

Remembering the first articles I composed when I was 15.  I wrote for San Francisco Teen News Paper.   I remember writing about guns in schools 25 years ago in 1994 after a peer student, a friend, lost his life. 

I remember interviewing the editor of the first San Francisco Gay Youth Magazine I ever purchased. 

I wasn’t even out yet.  
I think it was called Y! 

I remember writing about a bus driver, an African American Woman, who saw a spark within my spirit and fanned its flames by inviting me to participate in her Black Woman’s investment group as they conducted their business. 

They were preparing to invest in a Black Documentary organized by the first Black male Film Director I’ve ever met. I wrote that people were people and that you can only find out who they are by getting to know them beyond their cover and label. 

I wouldn’t pen another piece for 20 years until I was invited by the San Francisco Bay Times. I wrote about “the changing face of San Francisco”. I wrote about my deep connection to all communities across the city as a whiteness to rampant inequality, social injustice, violence, poverty, and displacement. 

Today, I’m writing about community-centered solutions to these social and political problems - our most concerning issues. 

Writing from a down to earth first hand lived experience about our common need to develop common sense, culturally competent, anti-biased and anti-racism curricula for law enforcement, businesses, non-profit and political industries as to restore safety, dignity, and opportunity to the people. 

Today and for the future, I’m writing about the need for progressive taxation and regulation of industries and markets that are re-shaping cities and our economies but aren't making the necessary contributions to help close the further widening the gaps between the impoverished, the rich and the diminishing middle class. 

I’m recognizing that I always write about how our past informs our present and prepares us for what’s to come in the future - a future that as I envision will be brighter than today.

Let's Stay Connected
Keeping up with my 2016 DCCC campaign promises, 2017 was a lot of focused work staging our success for 2018. 2018 is shaping up to be another community centered year, for me. I will be focusing a lot of time on coalition building around common social justice concerns, health impacts to communities of color, working with allies in helping to create a pipeline out of homelessness, organizing learning and community leadership opportunities -- inviting you to become engaged in making our world a better place. I hope you will join me!​
