California, let's talk about building better freelance cities
Freelancers are the future of work. And we’re the future of cities, too.
With 53 million independent workers and counting (and millions in California alone), we’re not just a statistic -- we’re a constituency.
Together, we have the power to change the way our cities work. But we need to ask the right questions. What makes these two cities great for freelancers? What infrastructure (coworking spaces, community centers, legal help, insurance options, etc.) do freelancers need? What helps you thrive, not just survive?
Los Angeles and San Francisco have always been decades ahead of the rest of the country. Cities across America are looking to you for the way forward.
I hope you can make it.
