We'll be marking the occasion with a panel of original drafters of San Francisco's Rent Ordinance; local electeds; and current city and state housing rights leaders. Discussion will look at the history and impact of rent control on San Francisco and the region, with a look ahead to new solutions for the Bay Area and all of California.
