The recent redistricting process made it clear that change is needed. We must reform redistricting to fairly represent communities and shared interests. While redistricting happens once a decade, the time for reform is now.
We're taking action to help create effective and compassionate solutions for city residents. We work on three related issues in this area of focus: policing practices, housing and homelessness, and transit equity.
A fair, functioning democracy depends on the informed and active participation of people in their government. We advocate for open government and a stronger Sunshine Ordinance, and educate people about why open government matters.
Redistricting is a rare opportunity to ensure everyone has a voice in our democracy. We were a champion for communities to have better options for participating in the local redistricting process. We also began advocating for reform to bring truly independent redistricting to our city.
We focused on two related issues. For policing practices, we kept an eye on government meetings, supported those most negatively affected by policing practices, and brought information into public view. For housing and homelessness, we took action to help create permanent solutions.
A fair, functioning democracy depends on the informed and active participation of people in their government. We advocated for open government and a stronger Sunshine Ordinance. We also educated people about why open government matters and how to get involved.
Our police department has hundreds of reform initiatives. As an area of focus in 2019–2021, we helped San Franciscans understand and shape policing practices. We provided clear explanations of what police reforms will do, how they're prioritized, who's responsible, and why changes are being made.
The Sunshine Ordinance is a set of rules designed to make sure the city government does its job in a way people can trust and understand. We educated people about the Sunshine Ordinance, supported efforts to strengthen the legislation, and served in a seat on the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force.
This statewide ballot measure, which was narrowly defeated in the November 2020 election, would have restored about $12 billion a year for schools and other vital community services. We took part in the largest signature gathering effort in California history and helped voters learn about this issue.
