Cindy Wu is the Deputy Director of the Chinatown Community Development Center and a former member of the San Francisco Planning Commission. She is currently Chair of the San Francisco Democratic Party.


Born and raised in San Francisco, Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez was the last staff writer at the former San Francisco Bay Guardian. Now he writes the S.F. Examiner's political column On Guard, where he has a delightfully good time outing the dirty laundry of politicians in power and giving voice to the ornery progressive left in his beloved, foggy home.


Randy Shaw is the Director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic and formed Uptown Tenderloin, Inc. to spearhead the opening of the Tenderloin Museum. He is the author of many books, including The Tenderloin: Sex, Crime and Resistance in the Heart of San Francisco. Shaw is also Editor of Beyond Chron, where he regularly covers San Francisco, California and national politics.

All proceeds go directly to the Tenderloin Museum, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization. These funds facilitate educational programming, employ Tenderloin residents, preserve San Francisco history, and support local artists. The Tenderloin Museum is free to community residents every Wednesday.
