Neighborhoods are being homogenized by corporate chain stores and decimated by gentrification driven by corporate real estate speculators. Low to middle income tenants, and local small and minority-owned businesses, are being driven out by Wall Street landlords charging shy-high rents. Those least able to help themselves are vilified for political gain. A once vibrant artistic community is being priced out of the city. And above all, far too often, elected officials place the interests of big financial supporters over the concerns of everyday people.
Our City is committed to organizing the people at a
grassroots level as an alternative to big money
politics. By involving people
directly in the democratic process, we can elect
representatives and pass measures that support neighborhoods, environmental progress, and the full diversity that makes San
Francisco such a special place. You

We can win on the strength of our ideals and a commitment to real grassroots organizing, but we need your help. You can make a difference by volunteering your time, getting involved in issues that affect your community, and by joining Our City as a member.
