    Go SFTRU Muni Challenge! Really exciting to see the turnout.

    I couldn’t make it to the press conference because of work but the night before a bunch of us made signs. Though I couldn’t be there, it looks like one of my signs even “met” Supe Wiener haha:

    Major props to everyone organizing this and for those who turned up to hold the posters and show support–awesome group effort!
