Yesterday I attended an interesting campaign kickoff and fundraiser hosted by a group of San Francisco parents at a house party in Cole Valley — Senator Mark Leno and Supervisor Carmen Chu were guest speakers and a number of other elected officials attended. These parents have formed a new group called the San Francisco Parent political action committee. According to their mission statement:
We are San Francisco parents. We advocate for:
- a high quality public education for all children in every neighborhood;
- enriching after-school, out-of-school and summer opportunities that support working families’ needs; and
- healthy, safe and vibrant communities city-wide.
We will support candidates and policies working to make these goals a reality.
