San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for our GOOD 100 event, celebrating our very own SF/Bay Area do-gooders.
GOOD has put together a list of the 100 people who are doing good in their communities in 2014. These are educators, inventors, designers, activists, founders, artists… lots of people with diverse backgrounds—and we’re lucky to have a a few of these do-gooders in our own city!
Join us to learn more on what our do-gooders are up to in the Bay Area and how you can get involved. Our event will use a Pecha Kucha type format to have these people share information in a fun and fast way.
Food and a non-alcoholic beverage will be offered during the event. Both vegetarian and meat options will be availalbe. The cost of your ticket will cover all food and berverage expenses.
Our Event Schedule
7pm: Doors open
Presenters will take the stage and talk with us about their organizations. These will be short, informative, and entertaining presentations.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and converse with the presenters. Ask them direct questions, get more information on what they are up to, or offer advice on how one can help.

S. Nadia Hussain, NAPAWF
The National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum is the only multi-issue, progressive, community organizing and policy advocacy organization for Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls in the U.S. Our mission is to build a movement advancing social justice and human rights for Asian & Pacific Islander women and girls. With chapters in 14 cities and offices in New York City and Washington DC, we work on six issue areas of civil rights, economic justice, educational access, ending violence against women, health and immigrant and refugee rights. Our work is currently focused on reproductive justice issues and comprehensive immigration reform.
Dana Frasz, Food Shift
40% of all food produced in the US is wasted while 50 million Americans are food insecure. This paradox has huge social, environmental and financial consequences. Food Shift works collaboratively with communities, businesses and governments to develop long-term sustainable solutions to reduce food waste and develop strategies toward a more sustainable use of food. Food Shift is shifting the paradigm around food recovery from one that is charity-based to one that ensures financial sustainability by designing a professional food recovery service that manages the collection and redistribution of surplus edible food from businesses to those in need.
