Priorities and Highlights:

Bridging Our Communities

Led the successful passage of Proposition C: San Francisco Commissions for All in 2020, to allow non-citizen residents to serve on our city’s Boards and Commissions.

In 2020, we became the first city nationwide to grant any person, regardless of their citizenship status, the opportunity to serve on commissions and advisory boards. Though this is one of many steps I will continue to take in promoting equitable and inclusive representation for all San Franciscans and especially our immigrant communities, we were able to bring upwards of 14% of San Francisco residents an additional voice in our political process through this measure.

Brought ESL classes back to Visitacion Valley

For nine years, there had been a lack of ESL literacy classes for senior citizens in the neighborhood, despite the fact that approximately 63% of Visitacion Valley residents speak another language besides English at home. I worked with community advocates throughout the neighborhood to bring back ESL literacy classes through the Visitacion Valley Family Center.
