Event description
Mayor London Breed is coming to Manny's to discuss leading San Francisco through the global pandemic and her vision for our recovery.

About this event

The pandemic forced the City to a complete stand still. City Hall was closed. Our commercial corridors were silent overnight.

But San Francsico has come out of the worst of the pandemic and is now roaring back to life.

Mayor London Breed led the City through this time along with the hard working women and men through the City government.

How did San Francisco show up for those who needed help the most?

What was it like making the call to close down so quickly and through the various ups and downs of the previous 15 months?

Which policies will continue past the pandemic?

And what kind of San Francisco does she want to emerge from this moment?

San Francisco Mayor London Breed joins us at Manny's to debrief, to celebrate the next chapter, and to discuss what she learned through the crisis.

The structure of this event will be about 45 minutes of discussion with Mayor Breed followed by small break out groups where YOU can meet some new folks and discuss what you just heard. We hope to help solicit a more collaborative discussion and hear the diverse stories in our city.

Manny's never turns away anyone for lack of funds. To receive a complementary ticket just email the word "grapefruit" to tomas@welcometomannys.com.

This event will be in person at Manny's but there will also be a Zoom link ticket for those who'd like to tune in digitally from the comfort of their home.

About Mayor London Breed:

Mayor London Breed is a native San Franciscan, raised by her grandmother in Plaza East Public Housing in the Western Addition neighborhood. In June 2018, Mayor Breed was elected to be the first African American woman and second woman in San Francisco history to serve as Mayor. She was re-elected for her first full four-year term in November 2019.

Under her leadership, the City launched a comprehensive COVID-19 testing strategy, provided millions of dollars in local relief for residents, small businesses, and communities most impacted by the pandemic, and developed a network of vaccination sites with the capacity to vaccinate at least 10,000 people per day. 

Mayor Breed is focused on helping the City’s homeless population into care and shelter; adding more housing for residents of all income levels; helping those suffering from mental health and substance use disorder on San Francisco’s streets; ensuring that all San Franciscans have access to a thriving economy; making San Francisco a cleaner and safer city; and furthering San Francisco’s leadership in combating climate change.

In 2020, Mayor Breed announced her vision to fundamentally change the nature of policing in San Francisco and issued a set of policies to address structural inequities, including reinvesting in the city’s African American community. 

Prior to public service, Mayor Breed served as Executive Director of the African American Art & Culture Complex in the Western Addition for over a decade. She also served as a San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Commissioner and in 2010 was appointed by then-Mayor Gavin Newsom to be a San Francisco Fire Commissioner, where she served until her election to the Board of Supervisors.

In 2013, Mayor Breed was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, representing District 5 for six years, including three years as President of the Board.
