5 options for digital events in SF: Monday, June 22

Here's your SF online event calendar for Monday, June 22. Join a virtual board game night, hear from the District 7 Supervisor candidates or tune in as a politician, lawyer, voting rights activist and likely candidate for Vice President talks about her new book.
