sf.citi urges Governor Brown to Take Action on Solving the Housing Crisis
In the midst of the most severe housing crisis in California’s history, the California State Senate and State Assembly passed a number of bills last week in an attempt to mitigate California’s housing shortage. The passed housing package strengthens accountability amongst localities, introduces streamlining development, and increases funding for affordable housing. Currently on the way to Governor Jerry Brown’s desk, sf.citi’s Board of Directors published a letter strongly urging the governor to sign SB 167, AB 678, SB 35, SB 2, SB 3, and AB 1515 into law. sf.citi stands behind meaningful legislation put forth to help individuals and families during these unprecedented times, and hopes to be part of the unifying force pushing towards needed changes. Read the letter we’ve sent to the Governor.
One City Forum Welcomes Tomiquia Moss
sf.citi’s One City Forum continues to grow and we’re pleased to announce the addition of a new member. The expansion of this collaboration between San Francisco’s tech and nonprofit leaders will increase its reach and diversify the Forum’s discussions on how to take action, raise awareness, and come together in facing this city’s most pressing issues.
Bringing an extensive career experience that spans across government, business, and nonprofits, we welcome Tomiquia Moss to the One City Forum. Over the last 15 years in the Bay Area, Tomiquia has gained invaluable leadership experience, overseeing Hope-SF’s $2.6 billion public housing and neighborhood revitalization plan, leading SPUR as the Community Planning Policy Director, and serving as Chief of Staff for Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. Now, in her current role as Director and CEO of Hamilton Families, Tomiquia focuses on assisting the growing number of San Francisco and Oakland families experiencing homelessness. sf.citi could not be more excited to bring Tomiquia on board – her dedication to community planning and social justice will be a boon to the Forum’s continued success.
Last week during our most recent Lunch and Learn, sf.citi hosted a lively discussion on emerging issues in San Francisco. At the lunch, sf.citi members gathered to share their perspective on the current state of affairs in their communities and discuss worthwhile measures that could be taken in response to the issues at hand. Thank you to member company AdRoll for hosting us once again, and to all member companies present!
Each month, sf.citi arranges an intimate lunch meeting for our members to engage with each other and key policymakers on the most pertinent issues affecting the tech community and the city of San Francisco. Past speakers include President of the Board of Supervisors London Breed, Supervisor Katy Tang, and President of the Board of Education Shamann Walton, to name a few.
