Known throughout the city for his advocacy for tenants’ rights, Ted Gullicksen, head of the San Francisco Tenants’ Union, died October 14. The Tenants’ Union will hold a memorial service for Gullicksen this Sunday, Nov. 16th in the Mission High School auditorium.

The service begins at 2 p.m. but guests will be admitted at 1:30 and are encouraged to arrive early. The event will feature speakers, a slideshow, poetry, music and T-shirts remembering the former director. The memorial is expected to last about 90 minutes. Time and weather permitting, refreshments will be served in the courtyard afterward.

Those who wish to remember Gullicksen with a donation to the Tenants Union may do so here, or can donate to a fund supporting Gullicksen’s now orphaned dog and mascot Falcor here.
