Closing UC Extension: The Real Story

Anyone interested in UC's greedy proposal to turn the old Extension site on Laguna St. into a for-profit, 450-unit housing development should attend this event. Eliza Hemenway---who worked at the Extension as UC was shutting it down---is making a documentary of that process. (For some backstory, see an interview District 5 Diary did with Eliza Hemenway):
