Come join us from 6-8pm on June 12 at the LGBT Center (1800 Market) as we explore the current swirl of challenges and initiatives that will determine how people get around San Francisco. We’ll discuss transportation funding measures recently placed on the fall ballot, big ideas such as tearing down I-280 and taking a Bay Bridge deck for bikes and buses, and the gap between political rhetoric and realities on the street along with a panel of key experts and activists.

Panelists include:
Supervisor Scott Wiener, District 8
Chema Hernández Gil, Community Organizer, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition
Jason Henderson, Assistant Professor of Geography, San Francisco State University
Steven T. Jones, Editor, San Francisco Bay Guardian (Moderator)
