In Memory of Ted Gullicksen

We join Ted Gullicksen's family in memorializing our beloved friend and inspirational lead organizer, who departed us on October 14th, 2014. We are hugely grateful for Ted's 26 years of devoted service to our organization and its mission, during which time he created a truly exceptional legacy of accomplishment. We are also enormously grateful for the widespread appreciation and love being expressed, as well as the offers of support in his honor.

Ted's collective approach to organizing and his generous training of others has fortunately positioned the Tenants Union to continue forward with great strength. We have maintained our normal schedule of counseling and tenant advocacy, mindful that Ted would want us to honor his work with our best dedication, teamwork, and positivity.

A public memorial service is being planned by Ted's friends and family for November 16, 2014, 2 pm, at Mission High School (18th Street between Church and Dolores Streets). More details to be announced shortly. Please send photos you would like to have included in a slideshow at the public memorial to:
