People are worried about jobs, housing, transportation, and about making sure that everybody has the chance to participate, prosper and reach their full potential, regardless of their race or the neighborhood in which they live.Is it possible to provide true opportunity for all residents of our region, or is the notion of Bay Area exceptionalism just a myth?
