The March for Our Lives #NeverAgain

Two weeks ago, a galvanizing force swept across the country in support for gun reform. In solidarity with the survivors of the recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, sf.citi was proud to sponsor the San Francisco March for Our Lives on March 24th. Thousands of supporters here in San Francisco and millions more across the nation lined the streets in support of ending gun violence and demanding action on gun control legislation.
At what might be one of the largest protest rallies in American history, sf.citi Board Chair Ron Conway joined many of the prominent voices in gun reform in addressing our leaders at the nation’s capital. He called on legislators to implement common-sense reforms to stop mass shootings and end gun violence.
sf.citi Members discuss the State of San Francisco with London Breed
In the latest installment of sf.citi’s Lunch and Learn series, sf.citi welcomed President of the Board of Supervisors and mayoral candidate London Breed to Comcast to sit down with our members. The packed room of sf.citi members had the opportunity to question Supervisor Breed about her current work in City Hall and her views on various issues facing San Francisco. Among the topics discussed were public safety concerns, housing affordability, and the homelessness crisis. Breed emphasized the need to build more relationships between tech and the community, telling the room, “it takes time but it is how we are going to make San Francisco feel inclusive for everyone. Let’s make San Francisco the incredible place we know it can be.” sf.citi’s Lunch and Learn series provides our members an intimate setting to engage with and ask important questions to local leaders. With a busy election season ahead, we look forward to holding more discussions on the future of San Francisco with City leaders.
