Sixty Plus Lecture: "Reflections of a Recovering Politician" with Eric Mar

Monday, May 8, 2017 - 13:00
Former Supervisor Eric Mar: How People-Powered Public Policy Making Empowers New Leadership and Advances Equity and Social Justice
 
Eric Mar shares his thoughts and recollections of his time serving as a San Francisco Supervisor from 2008 – 2016. During that time he championed numerous policies on health equity, hunger and food justice, and senior nutrition. He was a leader in San Francisco’s soda tax campaigns. And he led the national fight in 2010 challenging fast food companies to meet basic nutritional standards for children’s meals. A strong supporter of “aging in place” programs, he helped build the Golden Gate Village in the Richmond Senior Center. Eric currently teaches Public Policy and Asian American Studies at SF State University.
