THE JUNE 26 MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED BECAUSE MR. LETOURNEAU HAS A SCHEDULING CONFLICT THAT AROSE TOO LATE FOR US TO FIND A SUBSTITUTE SPEAKER.
In the last three years, the Golden State Warriors have redefined professional basketball. They continued to set records this season as they won their second NBA title in three seasons. Connor Letourneau has been the beat writer covering the Warriors for the Chronicle this season. While describing his work of reporting on one of the best basketball teams of all time, he will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the team and its players. Whether you’re a casual fan or a hard-core member of Dub nation, get ready for an enlightening behind-the-scenes look at the game and the team.

Elected in November 2016 by a nearly 2-1 margin, neighborhood resident Victor Hwang is the newest judge of the San Francisco County Superior Court. He is personable, patient, and an excellent lawyer, all of which he will need to be in his new job. He will speak about how we select our judges (both elected and appointed), how judges are trained, and what happens when San Franciscans come before the court as litigants, defendants, witnesses, or jurors. He gives us the rare opportunity to see the justice system from the perspective of one of the more important people charged with making it work. Bring your polite, probing questions.

Donald Trump was elected President in part on a promise to deport many more undocumented immigrants. In part through litigation by cities such as San Francisco, the Trump administration has been at least temporarily thwarted in its attempts to penalize localities, including San Francisco, that have pledged not to cooperate with the new administration’s deportation efforts. Niloufar Khonsari, left, and Ana Herrera, below, are distinguished immigrant-rights attorneys and key figures in San Francisco’s resistance to the Trump immigration policy. They will tell us what the federal government has been doing; how city government, nonprofit groups, and pro-immigrant activists have formed a local network of resistance in response; and what the future may hold.
Unless otherwise noted, SHARP meetings occur on the last Monday of the month, at 7 p.m., at our meeting space—the ground floor of 1736 Ninth Avenue (between Moraga and Noriega). map
