SHARP is a volunteer neighborhood association serving the Inner Sunset and Sunset Heights neighborhoods of San Francisco. Our activities include free program meetings in our building, small financial grants, and a resources page with links to useful information about the neighborhood. Our programs cover civic, political, and cultural topics. The meetings are a great place to connect with friendly, constructive neighbors, like you. You’re invited! SHARP — a resource for the Inner Sunset.
Unless otherwise noted, SHARP meets at 7 p.m. on the last Monday of the month in the ground floor meeting space of our building, 1736 Ninth Avenue (between Moraga and Noriega). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for cookies and conversation.

During the Depression, artists in San Francisco showed us their world in vibrant public artworks as big and powerful as the events and people they depicted. Do we still hear the messages? Can we use them? Robert Cherny, history professor emeritus at SF State, will explore and explain these spectacular artifacts of an era that profoundly shaped our own. If art were water, these pieces would be the waterfalls of Yosemite. Join us for a dazzling display.
DA George Gascon and Representatives from the Taraval and Park Police Stations Discuss Crime in the Neighborhood
Monday, March 28, 2016
In 2015, the crime rate in San Francisco rose while the arrest rate fell. The rise in crime included a 47% increase in thefts from vehicles. In September 2015, the Chronicle reported that “burglaries and thefts [in San Francisco] have been skyrocketing in recent months. . . .” District Attorney George Gascon and representatives of the police captains from the Park and Taraval stations will discuss the crime trend, what they are doing about it, and how we can help. Bring your respectful, pointed, well-informed questions.
