SOS Meeting 7:00 Tonight: SF Center
Over LyonMartin Clinic Closure

This important meeting notice just landed in my in box from Tommi Avicolli Mecca:

Hi friends,
As you may have heard, Lyon-Martin Health Clinic is closing at the end of the business day on Thursday. Tonight we are pulling together a community meeting at 7pm at the LGBT Center, 1800 Market Street, room 301. The intent of the meeting is to formulate a community response./demands and develop an action plan. At 6:30pm, a few of us are planning to meeting to come up with a tentative agenda for the meeting.

Lyon-Martin has 2500 clients and there is no transition plan for these people for when they close their doors on Thursday afternoon... When New Leaf closed, many patients were transferred there and now they will be bounced to who knows where.

Please join us tonight.

All the best,
Gabriel Haaland

Also, here are two important updates to check out:

#1 - Over at the SFAppeal.com site is some new info reported by Chris Roberts from Supervisor Scott Wiener about the clinic and its potential closure later this week.

#2 - Also on the story are Brock Keeling and Jay Barmann at the SFist.com site, raising good questions about gay organizations in town and their troubles they are facing.
