How do the voices of children, youth, and community members shape our neighborhoods? 

Join us for a discussion from a panel of community engagement practitioners to delve into San Francisco Planning’s approach to engagement, detail how we’ve adapted our engagement during Stay at Home Order, and share our successes engaging with children and youth in partnership with Y-PLAN. 

Come with questions and eagerness to amplify community voices! You will leave with examples of how to effectively and authentically connect with community members and strengthen our neighborhoods and cities.
