Profound political and demographic changes could impact the future of San Francisco, and they'll begin to play out in the November election. Thousands of new arrivals, many of them tech workers, could register and vote in the election, potentially shifting the direction of the traditionally progressive east side of town. Meanwhile, fear and anger over the housing affordability and displacement crisis is not just limited to left-leaning tenants; it's spread citywide and now impacts both low income and middle income residents, tenants and homeowners and offers a potential opportunity for organizing beyond a traditional liberal base.
How do these trends collide, conspire, and play out in the November election and beyond? Join our panel of political observers as they discuss, analyze and offer opportunities for action.
