California Agrees There's No Such Thing As A Child Prostitute

Yasmin Vafa | September 26, 2016 | Women
One year ago, we launched a campaign in California, called "No Such Thing As A Child Prostitute." Our goal? To eliminate the very notion of "child prostitute" in both language and in law.

Arthur Bruzzone | September 26, 2016 | Politics

There's More To An Hawaiian Sunset Than You Think

Alexis Sclamberg | September 20, 2016 | Hawaii
One of my all time favorite moments of day is sunset. I live in San Francisco's Marina district just a few blocks from the Golden Gate Bridge, and on clear evenings I like to head down to the water to watch the sun set over the bridge.

Stop Suspending Driver's Licenses For Unpaid Fees

Omar Epps | September 15, 2016 | Politics
Suspending driver's licenses takes people who are poor, and traps them in debt. It takes Americans hanging on by a thread, and robs them of their livelihoods.

Sean Martinfield | September 15, 2016 | San Francisco
Conducted by Nicola Luisotti, the production by director David McVicar features tenor Yonghoon Lee in the title role, Anna Pirozzi as Maddalena, J'Nai Bridges as Bersi, and George Gagnidze as Carlo Gérard. Stylish sets by Robert Jones and period costumes by Jenny Tiramani capture the tension and disparity between the Haves and the Have Nots.

San Francisco Opera Ball Marks a Revolutionary New Season

Jennifer Raiser | September 14, 2016 | San Francisco

City Immersion As A New Way Of Learning

Darya Dziadzenka | September 14, 2016 | San Francisco
They say high school is preparation for college, and college is preparation for life. But how can you prepare for life in a collegiate environment with about as much in common with real life as a city built from Legos?

Juanita MORE! | September 9, 2016 | San Francisco
Voting for this measure might make some people feel good in the moment, and it may help some other ambitious politicians climb the ladder. But it won't help the folks who need it the most: our homeless neighbors.

Evaluating Trump's Immigration Plan: Facts To Bring Down A Wall Of Fiction

Hector E. Sanchez | September 9, 2016 | Latino Voices
The facts demonstrate that building a wall is purely a political ploy and attempt to pander to Trump's base. After all, it is a powerful hallmark of his campaign that aims to create a culture of division, based on dominance and hate.

Airbnb's Work To Fight Bias And Discrimination

Eric Holder | September 8, 2016 | Black Voices
We all have to take a role in addressing discrimination where it exists. I believe Airbnb has done that, and while the effort is still a work in progress, this work will lead to better policies and technologies that will bring us together and ultimately end discrimination.

Why Jerry Brown Should Veto AB 2844 In California

Marcy Winograd | September 6, 2016 | Politics
Taken at face value, this new law would be utterly redundant - except for the fact that it would open the door for a witch hunt, involving the creation of an unprecedented thought crime.

AYFKM, Silicon Valley?

Edward Yaeger | September 2, 2016 | San Francisco
Wow, Silicon Valley, you might just be the worst. Land of opportunity. Idealized climate. Stanford University. Home to Google, Facebook, Apple, et al. What happened? When I moved here two years ago, I was brimming with excitement and hope, even at a cynical 38 years of age, which, I now...
