Folks in the Bay Area looking for a fun evening out? Stop by the Global Exchange offices in San Francisco for our annual Open House. We are celebrating 23 years of social change and activism on October 6, 6-9:30pm, at 2017 Mission St., 2nd Floor, San Fran, CA (16 & Mission BART).
It will be a wonderful evening with great food, specialty cocktails and sangria, Típica Cubana music by Los Soneros de Acero, and a chance to meet and mingle with Global Exchange staff. And of course, we’ll be hosting our annual Prize Drawing. Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Reality Tour and to support our work. Tickets are just $10.
Our Open House is for you, our members, supporters, and friends. Whether individuals or organizations, our staff has been inspired by the positivity from the community, surrounding this event.
