Dr. Andrew Flores, Lokey’s Assistant Professor of Political Science published three policy reports on global LGBT acceptance and inclusion and the connections they have with a country’s economic well-being. An op-ed on the published reports co-authored by Dr. Flores also appeared in the Advocate, a magazine covering LGBT politics. The reports provide new measures of global LGBT inclusiveness, offering both scholars and advocates resources for their ongoing efforts:

How to be a Local Government Change Maker

How to be a Local Government Change Maker

An event with Mills Alumna Susan Ma and others...see link below:

April 11th, 6pm-8pm

What does it take to create impactful change in local government? With 101 cities, hundreds of city agencies and tens of thousands of city employees across the region, it is easy for lasting, successful civic ideas to go unnoticed. Nevertheless, important projects occur every day, creating better places for us all to live, work and play. Join us for a discussion about the workforce challenges and the opportunities that exist for aspiring civic leaders within local government here in the Bay Area.

Panelists:
- Jason Mitchell / Oakland Department of Public Works
- Susan Ma / Office of Economic and Workforce Development, City and County of San Francisco
- Krista Canellakis / San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Innovation, City and County of San Francisco

Moderator:
- Peter Gallotta / San Francisco Department of the Environment, City and County of San Francisco

Susan Ma (MPP alumna) is on the panel. It would be wonderful if a rep from Mills could go to support her and promote the Mills MPP. However, if that's not possible, perhaps someone can prep Susan to do a shout-out for Mills and also put the call out to MPP alums to show up. The event is free and open to the public. More info below.

Democratic Norms Are Under Attack, and Not Just by Trump

Unwritten rules of fair play are being increasingly disregarded, at local and state levels - as well as national. Policy decisions made to punish states and localities where opponents are the majority.

This is dangerous.

http://www.governing.com/topics/politics/gov-democracy-trump-states-legislatures.html

Like the president, state politicians are playing by new rules and openly trying to undermine critics who threaten their power -- whether they're lawmakers, reporters or voters.

The Rise of San Francisco’s ‘Extreme Commuters’

What does "drive until you can afford it" mean in the SF Bay Area? What does it cost us? Our communities? Our world?

http://brokeassstuart.com/blog/2017/09/12/the-rise-of-san-franciscos-extreme-commuters/

Thanks to hypergentrification and mass displacement, we can now add ‘extreme commuting’ to the essential lexicon of Bay Area inequality. And we need to start using it in sentences more often. Because ‘extreme commuting’ helps to define a broken city, where high-paid workers and their wealthy bosses…
