Description

In light of the sudden passing of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, it remains important to maintain AAPI engagement in the upcoming mayoral election. This forum is designed for candidates to engage in Q&A with constituent members of various San Francisco-based civic associations to understand their views regarding issues of varying degrees of prominence affecting the San Francisco's diverse AAPI communities.

In advance of the forum, questions will be solicited from members of participating partner organizations. The organizing committee will select a few of these questions to be asked at the forum, either by each submitter in person or by the forum moderator. Attendees are welcome to submit written questions on-site; at least two questions submitted in this fashion will be selected to be asked by the submitter.
