The San Francisco activist group LGBT Compassion is leading a charge to change the situation. In September the group scored a major point in getting the City of San Francisco to instruct Good Hope Baptist Church to “cease and desist” providing church property for New Longs Live Poultry to do business on.
United Poultry Concerns is working with LGBT Compassion on this campaign and we will keep our readers informed about what is happening and how they can help. We thank you for your letters to Amy Brown of San Francisco’s Real Estate Division and to Reverend Rance Whiteside, former pastor of Good Hope Baptist Church, who is now in a convalescent home. Rev. Robinson the new pastor returned our letters unopened.
For updates, photos, and video clips, please visit LGBT Compassion’s Website page, “Animal Abuse at San Francisco Farmers’ Markets,” at www.lgbtcompassion.org/livemarkets/. UPC’s “Live Markets and Auctions” section of our Website also posts this campaign, along with other information about live markets, including our 11-minute video Inside a Live Poultry Market, at www.upc-online.org/livemarkets/.
