Human Rights moves into the Bayview

The Human Rights Commission announced Thursday that in partnership with the African American Chamber of Commerce it is opening an outreach office in the Bayview neighborhood “to strengthen the relationship between local African American businesses and The City.”

The outreach office will let the small local businesses in that neighborhood know about all of The City's contracting opportunities, host workshops and seminars on The City’s contracting procedures, link small businesses with city financing programs and “create a forum where small local businesses can directly share their ideas and concerns with city agencies.”

The office is located at 1485 Bayshore Boulevard, Suite 320H. For office hours and programming inquiries, call (415) 252-2503.

“It is critical that all city agencies work with the community to stimulate economic activity in the southeast sector of San Francisco,” Human Rights Commission’s Executive Director Theresa Sparks said in a statement.
