Town Hall: The State of Downtown San Francisco
KALW Radio launched the station’s new downtown pop-up space at 220 Montgomery on Thursday, October 5, 2023 with a lively and thoughtful panel discussion about the state of downtown San Francisco. Led by KALW Executive Producer Ben Trefny, the panel featured a conversation with Supervisor Aaron Peskin, the unofficial "mayor" of the Tenderloin Del Seymour, and the San Francisco Chronicle's Cecilia Lei. The talk included a frank look at the current issues facing the city, as well as a discussion of potential solutions. The panel also honored Dianne Feinstein, whose memorial was held a few blocks away at San Francisco’s City Hall earlier that day.
"There's so much disagreement in this city, but I think there is agreement that we're not where we want to be."Cecilia Lei
