Where would you physically go right now to become a better citizen?
It's hard - most of our civic engagement is happening online or in those once in a while moments when you vote or volunteer.
But it didn't always used to be this way.
We used to come together to watch the news and, for centuries, certain places to eat and drink also had a dual, sometimes hidden, purpose - they were places of learning, of conversation, of organizing, and of social change.
In an era where our conversations, our connections, and much of our civic discourse is happening digitally, we believe that we need to come together in person now more than ever.
We've built a civic social gathering space in the heart of our San Francisco that combines a cafe, restaurant, civil rights themed bookstore, and a community gathering and programming space.
Whether it's talks + Q&As with interesting change makers, program nights hosted by local non-profits, advocacy groups, or campaigns, book talks, town halls with local and national politicians, open mics, debates and elections watch parties, or just a place to watch the news with your friends and colleagues, there will always be some way at Manny's to plug in and get informed.
