Throughout its 30 year history the SBN has proudly argued for a fair and economically sound environment in which small business can thrive. We believe strongly that pride-of-ownership leads to a diverse and healthy, locally-driven economy that keeps dollars in San Francisco and contributes to flourishing neighborhoods that maximize quality of life.
We cautiously approach advocacy – not from a contentious right and wrong perspective – but with collaborative and reasoned problem-solving. A SBN delegate maintains a one-on-one relationship with each Supervisor.
Issues change and convolute constantly. Currently the SBN is working with the Mayor's office, various Supervisors and other relevant parties to bring focus and optimal outcomes to several critical issues:
Formula Retail Controls
Minimum Wage Levels
City Purchasing and Procurement Inequities
Homeless and Safety Concerns in the 16th & Mission Corridor's and similarly plighted areas city-wide
Sunday Parking Fees
Fair Hire Ordinance
Small Business Network
