Sometimes it's OK for a Neighbor to Make Noise

Sure you want your neighbors to keep the racket down to a low roar. But if your neighbor is a "Truth-Teller," you just might want to turn the volume up.

Marie Harrison is just such a neighbor. She, husband Na'im, children and grandchildren are Quesada Gardens members on the 1700 block of Quesada where they are loved as good neighbors. Marie is a familiar figure from her run for Supervisor, column in the Bayview Newspaper, and long activism through Greenaction to close down a polluting power plant in our neighborhood.

She has been selected for The 2007 10 Women Campaign, Truth-Tellers, featuring Flyaway Productions (The Dance Brigade and Grrl Brigade) at the ODC on Shotwell between 17th and 18th Streets. Be there with Marie and her fellow honorees on Saturday the 10th. Tickets available at the ODC Box Office (415.863.9834) or online.

Congratulations, Marie!
