Geri Spieler & Rick Kaplowitz – San Francisco Values (Virtual Event)
August 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
As Americans are one step from deciding who will be our next president, Geri Spieler and Rick Kaplowitz, the authors of San Francisco Values: Common Ground for Getting America Back on Track shed light on major issues today and how San Francisco’s value system can help us vote for the right candidate. Tracing the evolution of the country by using their city’s progressive culture as a baseline, the authors’ research uncovers real laws and undisputed facts, as well as dispel the vitriolic conservative view of San Francisco as “un-American.” Spieler and Kaplowitz reveal how the Bay Area is family-friendly, equality-based, and patriotic—values in common with cities and towns across the USA. Viewed from national, regional, and San Franciscan perspectives, San Francisco Values includes insights on racial inequities, health care, homelessness, and immigration.
Spieler, an investigative journalist, and Kaplowitz, a former college dean with a degree from Harvard, live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
