Remembering Mayor Lee
Along with our entire community, sf.citi was deeply saddened and shocked to learn of Mayor Lee’s passing last week and would like to use our final newsletter of the year to reflect on the legacy of Mayor Lee. Mayor Lee cared deeply about San Francisco and its people. Under his time in office, he led San Francisco out of the worst recession in recent history into unprecedented economic growth, and was a key leader in building our flourishing tech industry. Mayor Lee also created some of the nation’s leading progressive policies, such as the country’s first paid maternity leave. Though there are no words to express our gratitude to Mayor Lee, we’d like to share a few great stories about the Mayor’s legacy:
sf.citi’s 2017 Accomplishments
Throughout the past year, sf.citi hosted a myriad of member opportunities including the debut of our Lunch and Learn series and our Mayoral Roundtable series with Mayor de Blasio of NYC and Mayor Garcetti of LA, expanded the One City Forum, and partnered with the ACLU, fwd.us, Planned Parenthood, and more for evolving federal discussions – just to name a few.
Help Spread the Holiday Cheer
Give back to your community this holiday season by volunteering with great organizations like the SFFD and more. From individual to group volunteering, sf.citi’s amazing nonprofit partners – including Larkin Street Youth Services, Jewish Vocational Service, United Way Bay Area, Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, and Hamilton Families – have opportunities for everyone.
Thank you to everyone who supports our mission in connecting the tech industry with the San Francisco community and working to keep San Francisco the innovation capital of the world. Wishing everyone a happy holiday and a prosperous new year!
