Statement from the Board of Directors - Tenderloin Equitable Development Project

14 JUNE 2017

Tenderloin Equitable Development Project (TEDP) wishes to announce the departure of our Executive Director, John Butler, with effect from Friday 16th June. We thank John for his contribution to advancing the Tenderloin's agenda through TEDP and wish him well in his future endeavors. 

TEDP has been an advocate and partner for the Tenderloin and its residents for the past 18 years. We remain committed to our shared vision of building a neighborhood with opportunity, community, and justice for all. TEDP's Strategic Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Directors in December 2016, remains the framework through which we will work with partners and develop initiatives around the pillars of equitable development, neighborhood livability and community mobilization.

We are excited about continuing the work initiated on the Tenderloin Merchants Association and are now taking it to the next stage. We also look forward to with working with our partners on its implementation. With an engaged Board and professional staff, we are excited for the challenges and opportunities that this new phase of our organization's story brings.
