A national teach-in took place Saturday and San Francisco Mayor London Breed was among those on the panel.

The group discussed a number of hot topics that have swirled around America's reckoning with race and social justice. -- from the protests over the death of George Floyd to the entire Black Lives Matter movement.

"This movement is more than just a movement it means something to people's livelihoods. It can't just be you show up for a protest in order to take a picture and put it on your social media page. You have to be in this in your everyday life in what you do," Breed said.
