STAND UP FOR THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE
On June 13th, join sf.citi for The Fight for Choice, an important conversation on the status of women’s reproductive rights in the Bay Area and beyond.
This latest installment of sf.citi’s One City Forum event series could not come at a more critical time. Earlier this month, Alabama and several other states passed the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. Since then, people have rallied around women’s reproductive rights. Adding to the movement, The Fight for Choice will bring San Francisco’s tech, nonprofit, and political communities together to discuss how we can defend women’s freedom and the right to choose.
The evening will open with remarks from California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, followed by informative discussions with District 5 Supervisor Vallie Brown, leaders from the ACLU of Northern California, Planned Parenthood Northern California, and other surprise speakers. Learn how this recent surge in attacks on reproductive rights will affect women here in California and the Bay Area. Plus, discover the most effective ways to stand up for women’s freedom of choice. Get tickets below!
The school year may be ending, but Circle the Schools is recruiting for next year. Become an sf.citi member and sign up!
BREAKING DOWN THE BASICS OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
If you’ve lived in the Bay Area, you’ve probably seen self-driving cars roaming our streets. As we look to the future of transportation, sf.citi breaks down the basics of autonomous vehicles and shares reasons to get excited about them.
What exactly are autonomous vehicles, or AVs? While this might seem like a straightforward question, the answer is not so simple. In the latest sf.citi blog, we give an overview of the six levels of automation used to classify autonomous vehicles, as well as some of their most common and cutting-edge technologies. We explore the potential of AVs to streamline modern transportation and save more than half a million lives.
Last week, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors introduced what has been colloquially coined the “Uber, Lyft Tax.” Less well-known is the fact that the proposed legislation would also affect autonomous vehicles in San Francisco. We explain how. Find out all you need to know in the blog below.
BAY AREA AND TORONTO TECH INDUSTRIES BET ON THE NBA FINALS
To celebrate the start of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, sf.citi and TechTO are betting on the winner for a good cause.
Not only are the Bay Area and Toronto home to basketball powerhouses, they are also innovative tech hubs committed to their communities. In celebration of this historic playoff moment, sf.citi and Toronto’s tech advocacy organization, TechTO, have launched a bet between tech ecosystems. The best part is that all donations go to tech education programs: Canada Learning Code if the Raptors win, or sf.citi’s very own Circle the Schools if the Warriors win.
sf.citi and TechTO are putting up the first $10,000 for each city. Now, we challenge others in our community to up the ante. Will the Warriors or the Raptors win? Hedge your bets and support our future tech leaders.
