While enormous federal feats like the Works Progress Administration or the Public Library System may seem utopic in 2019, they were the results of mass organization. What can we learn from the New Deal and from the grassroots progressive movements that have historically thrived in San Francisco? Where is this work being done today by activist groups, labor unions, and small business organizations? What can we look to in San Francisco’s past to inform the future and build better communities?
