A joint Bay Guardian and SF Transit Riders community forum
Thursday, October 9th, 6-8PM
SF LGBT Center, Rainbow Room
1800 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94102
San Francisco needs more affordable housing, a robust public transit system, and fully funded social services if it is to remain an efficient, diverse, compassionate city. Unfortunately, some political leaders have pitted transportation and housing activists against one another in recent years, particularly so in the upcoming election on Propositions A, B, G, K, and L.
We’ll provide some background on how public transportation service and facilities are paid for, and then we’ll examine how the conflict happened, the political tactics that are being employed, and what can be done to bridge the gap along with a panel of activists and experts.
