    LightHouse Day!


    Jun 10

    Its our 119th Anniversary! We are celebrating with author Leona Godin who just recently published "There Plant Eyes, A Personal and Cultural History of Blindness" released by Penguin House.

    "There Plant Eyes probes the ways in which blindness has shaped our ocularcentric culture, challenging deeply ingrained ideas about what it means to be “blind.” For millennia, blind­ness has been used to signify such things as thoughtlessness (“blind faith”), irrationality (“blind rage”), and unconsciousness (“blind evolution”). But at the same time, blind people have been othered as the recipients of special powers as compensation for lost sight (from the poetic gifts of John Milton to the heightened senses of the comic book hero Daredevil)."

    Join us from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. for celebration and special guests. Please RSVP to events@lighthouse-sf.org by June 8, 2021. The first 10 people to sign up will get a box of chocolates from Quail Point Chocolates!

    Your Personal Safety: Getting Back to Normal


    Jun 26

    In response to an increase in anti-Asian violence and apprehensions among LightHouse students about venturing out, the Belonging, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (BIDE) task force came together to develop a personal safety class, in collaboration with George Freeman of KATMA Defense in Savannah, GA for all LightHouse community members. Our goal is to educate our diverse community of students, friends, and family about strategies they can use to feel prepared to travel as restrictions are lifted and in the wake of recent events. Therefore, we are pleased to offer this series of free workshops as a tool to guide our community back to normal.

    Your Personal Safety: Getting Back to Normal

    Think Safe. Be Safe. Join the LightHouse on Saturday June 26th, 2021 at 1pm (Pacific Time) with self-defense and personal safety instructor George Freeman, an Advance Instructor with SEED which is a program of STRIVE 4You, to learn strategies for going out safely as COVID restrictions are lifted. The first in a three-part series, this workshop will cover tips, strategies, and approaches for feeling more confident being out in the community again. We are encouraging teens, adults and seniors to take part in this virtual 2-hour personal safety seminar, where Mr. Freeman will discuss topics like planning your own personal safety; situation awareness; avoidance and de-escalation techniques. Portions of the presentation will be interactive so be prepared for an informative and engaging event. To participate in this event please RSVP. If you have questions about the workshop, please email Jaclyne at jatoigue@lighthouse-sf.org, or call 415-694-7618.
