The San Francisco Human Rights Commission announced Thursday the opening of an outreach office in the city’s Bayview District.

Commission Executive Director Theresa Sparks said the office would help stimulate the economy of the city’s southeastern neighborhoods.

According to the commission, the office will help to inform local small businesses of contracting opportunities, connect them with the city’s Local Business Enterprise and Surety Bond and Finance programs, and create a forum for business owners to share ideas and concerns with city agencies.

Workshops and seminars on city contracting procedures are also planned.

The office is located at 1485 Bayshore Blvd., Suite 320H. For more information, call (415) 252-2503.
