Actor Danny Glover joins fight to keep CCSF free

Supervisor Jane Kim tweeted out a video Monday morning, featuring actor Danny Glover making an appeal to keep City College of San Francisco (CCSF) free.

Glover, a CCSF graduate, highlights the good work the school does, and credits it with some of his life success. “Without the opportunities afforded to me by City College I don’t know where I’d be today,” he states.

In regards to not providing City College with the funding it needs to stay free, Glover is in sharp disagreement. “This is unbelievable,” he states. “We need to stand up and tell the Mayor and the Board to respect the will of voters and fund free City College for all residents of San Francisco.”

The petition Glover references at the end of the video can be found here.
