What will San Francisco look like in in 20 years? What does it look like now? What challenges does the city face? Considering the challenging issues that face San Francisco such as gentrification, poverty, digital and educational inequity, and entrepreneurship. We have asked our speakers to envision a new San Francisco based on history and their experiences. Building on the art of storytelling, each narrator will share what they feel needs to be built and what it will take to activate the community.
