Sponsored by SF Parent Political Action Committee, Parents for Public Schools, SF Family Support Network, Teach for America, the Chinese Voter Educate Committee (CAVEC) and Congregation Sherith Israel, this forum is to give mayoral candidates a chance to show their parental side, focusing on, organizers say, “key educational and policy issues important to families.”

According to forum organizers, Jeff Adachi, John Avalos, David Chiu, Bevan Dufty, Joanna Rees, Phil Ting, and Leland Yee are all confirmed attendees, with Ed Lee and Dennis Herrera “still confirming their availability.”

According to the SF Parent PAC, “we submitted a relatively short questionnaire to the candidates ahead of time, and have enlisted the help of talented moderators to continue the thread of the questions as they see fit” during Tuesday’s forum.

Refreshments will be available, as well as childcare. To RSVP, email For more information and a full list of questions to be asked of the candidates, visit
