San Francisco Could Face $32 Million Loss From Black Tourism Boycott

In San Francisco, the African-American Chamber of Commerce’s boycott of the city’s tourism and hospitality industry is expected to make the city lose at least $32 million. The chamber wants more inclusion of Blacks in promotions, board positions and staffing in the industry. The San Francisco Travel authority has to put together recommendations by April 30, otherwise the boycott will continue.
