San Francisco is a wonderful combination of of urban and natural beauty which we love. Help us celebrate life in our favorite city by joining the San Francisco League of Conservation Voters on THURSDAY OCTOBER 20th at the 50 Mason Social Club for our latest “I Love San Francisco” Art Contest & Fundraiser.

Join SFLCV and others at the League of Young Voters’ Pissed Off Voter Guide release party. SFLCV is co-sponsoring the event so come on down. The event is Friday night at Gestalt Haus on 16th street in the Mission (3159 16th Street), just a couple blocks from the 16th street BART station.
Why does SFLCV oppose Prop D?
In short its two things: we don’t think ads and signs make a neighborhood a better place, and it’s bad government. Complex planning code does not belong in the ballot box.
