We'll discuss proposals to reform SF government in order to address some of our city's most challenging problems and then we'll sit down with leaders of SFBATCO to hear about their efforts to bring diversity and innovation to Bay Area theater.

First, we'll do a deep dive into San Francisco government. We’ll look at what’s working, what’s not, and what might change to address some of the problems our city is facing.
