Mission District Walking Tours:
Precita Eyes Mural Tours: Tour the murals in the Mission. On our own. Purchase ticket at their website $20. http://www.precitaeyes.org/tours.html
Mission District Walking tour: Estamos Pero No Estamos: The growing invisibility of a community
There is one truth about the once dominantly Latino neighborhood
known as San Francisco's Mission District: Everyone has their own definition of the Mission. Every Latino and/or long-time
resident has their own stories and opinions. Every scholar and/or investigative
reporter has their own conclusions and statistics. (Even real estate agents arbitrarily move the
Mission’s boundaries to make sales.) And
everyone is right. So, to give
you a broader presentation, this tour will be led by San Francisco residents
Candelaria, Ismael, and Magdalena (read about the tour organizers). It will
be an organized dialogue with the participants. We
especially want to provide insights to those from communities facing
similar cultural/economic devastation to prevent it from happening
This will be a 2-3 hour tour that will include representing NACCS in
the Cesar Chavez Parade through the Mission during which information will also be imparted.
It seems fitting that NACCS participate in the parade during what could
be the one-and-only time that NACCS holds its annual conference in San
Francisco. Though we will minimally discuss some murals that
we pass along the route, this is not a mural-focused tour. Social, economic, and political issues will
be discussed as we encounter other community landmarks.
