sf.citi SUPPORTS TECH POLICY SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE SAN FRANCISCO
We are sf.citi, the tech trade association of San Francisco. We empower the San Francisco technology community to have a voice in local tech policy decisions and collaborate with leaders in government on solving local issues. Founded in 2012, we are committed to building cross-sector conversation between the City’s tech, nonprofit, and political communities. We drive innovative policy solutions and develop social impact partnerships to address longstanding issues facing San Francisco.
sf.citi compiled a list of resources from San Francisco tech companies — and sf.citi members — to help people, organizations, and businesses navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about these tech resources and the latest COVID-19 updates in San Francisco, the Bay Area, and California.
sf.citi created several November 2020 election resources for San Francisco voters, including our November 2020 Voter Guide, our 2020 Supervisor Candidate Questionnaire, and our 2020 San Francisco District Debate Series. Exercise the full power of your political voice by voting all the way down the San Francisco ballot on November 3, 2020!
At the beginning of the year, sf.citi sets a policy agenda outlining the tech policy areas that matter most to sf.citi and our members. Read our latest policy goals and commitments around workforce development, the digital divide, housing, homelessness, and more in San Francisco.
“The public policy landscape moves so quickly in San Francisco. It’s really helpful when sf.citi brings in key decision makers right before legislation is completed or finalized because they hear us as one voice. For them to be able to hear us together makes an impact.”
Director of Government Affairs
“I just want to take a moment to thank all of the folks at sf.citi who recognized in 2012 that we need to change the culture of getting engaged, the culture of the innovation economy by saying we are neighbors; we care about everyone who lives in our community.”
Assemblymember David Chiu
17th Assembly District of California
“I’m incredibly excited to join the sf citi board. Along with other key leaders in the tech community, I’m hoping to be able to do even more to push sensible physical and virtual growth policies as well as develop partnerships to address pressing issues such as growth, opportunity, and education.”
Chief of Public Affairs in California
“The capacity that sf.citi builds and the intelligence it provides, allows me to make smart decisions in order to provide that clarity I need to not just serve my business, but also serve the community.”
Head of City and State Public Policy
“sf.citi serves a fundamentally important role in building community across the local tech industry and then bringing that community to bear for good through civic engagement. Working with community and political leaders, sf.citi is helping to safeguard San Francisco as a place of opportunity for all.”
General Manager of Industry and External Affairs
“One of the things that I like about sf.citi is that it is basically ingrained in the heartbeat of the tech industry and in the actual pulse of the city.”
