Myriam Begins New Adventure
Myriam Zamora is fond of pulling on her revolutionary Nicaraguan roots to offer inspiration and support, often reciting sayings and poems in Spanish to worried tenants who come in to our San Francisco tenant rights clinic stressed and upset over bad landlord behavior. And she is never too busy to offer a client a cup of coffee or glass of water, or even take time out of her busy day to head out during her lunch hour and pay them a visit to see how they are doing.
It is this special wisdom and patience of an elder that lends the balance to our entire organization. Myriam recently retired after more than a dozen years of working in housing support services, first, with St. Peter’s Housing Rights Committee, and then with Causa Justa :: Just Cause – after the merger. We will miss her, but the community can take comfort in knowing she will still be around, lending a hand, “de vez en cuando” (once in a while).
Celebrate her legacy with us. Join us in thanking and honoring all her inspiring contributions at a retirement party we’re holding for her February 27 at 522 Valencia, from 6:00-8:00pm. We’d love for you to join us!
Myriam’s Retirement Party!
Friday, February 27th 6-8pm
Centro del Pueblo, 474 Valencia Street, SF
