For Mothers Out Front San Francisco, this was an important first step in implementing steps toward action addressing the climate crisis in San Francisco—a hearing on a report detailing where we are, as well as goals. At the beginning of the hearing the room was packed; by the time we testified over four hours later,our row previously full of Mothers Out Front had dwindled down to three. We commented on the need for a massive mobilization and cooperation to ensure a livable climate for our children, as well as making San Francisco a place that is environmentally friendly enough to attract and keep families here.
