About Kelly Cullen
Kelly Cullen Community is named in honor of TNDC’s former Executive Director, Brother Kelly Cullen (1953-2010). Kelly helped plant the roots of TNDC, then a fragile and fledgling organization, which grew into the thriving neighborhood institution it is today. He cared deeply about the people of the Tenderloin and was a natural-born promoter, passionate about community and political activism.
