Sunshine Club Brings Light to Dark Times

To support members who do not have access to technology or do not feel comfortable joining virtual meetings, our Sunshine Club is transitioning their support for the homebound to the old-fashioned telephone call!

If you know of any member who is isolated and would like a weekly call from a Sunshine Club “phone buddy,” please send their name and information to sunshine@aasfmarin.org.

Our Turn to Nudge the Judge

SF Public Relations Committee is seeking a team of volunteers to work on outreach with local courts, public defenders’ offices and recovery facilities regarding “slip signing” at virtual Zoom meetings.

Experience with the legal system as a lawyer, DUI defendant or treatment facility could be helpful, but is not essential. 

Please contact sfpr@aasfmarin.org for more information.
