CANCELED San Francisco Civil Grand Jury

2/26/2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM PT

CANCELED DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT

The San Francisco Civil Grand Jury is comprised of citizens who investigate and issue reports with recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of our government that controls a budget of over 11 billion dollars. Although the history of the civilian oversight started with the Magna Carter, California is one of the few remaining states that seeks citizens to be involved to understand their local government, and to participate in improving how services are provided to local citizens.

It is a year’s commitment, but it is a year that provides a wealth of information, a new perspective on local government, and how a group of citizens come together to make a difference. Please join two Forepersons from earlier juries to discuss and ask questions about the experience of sitting on a grand jury, the annual process that you through to get to your published reports, and changes in San Francisco government that have resulted from the work of the civil grand jury.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”

Mindy Marantz,
donor since 2013
