These are the issues we care about and will fight for. We support policies that make sense for San Francisco's future, not its past. If this is the San Francisco you want to see, sign up and we'll keep you informed about what's going on and how to get involved.
San Francisco has not been building enough housing for decades. This has led to skyrocketing rents, increasing homelessness, and reduced economic opportunity as rent eats up an ever-growing amount of everyone’s paycheck.
We support: making it easier to build homes at all price points to reduce rent and displacement pressures, once again making San Francisco a city where renters and first-time homeowners can thrive.
San Francisco’s transit network could be one of the best in the country, but unfortunately gets caught in the same traffic as cars, reducing reliability, service, and efficiency.
We support: making San Francisco a truly transit-first city with more bus lanes, bike infrastructure, and Muni/BART investments that make it easier for everyone to get around. We believe San Francisco should be a people first, not car first, city that prioritizes pedestrian safety and brings traffic related accidents to zero.
San Francisco’s homelessness crisis has been driven by expensive rents, which leads to evictions as residents are thrown out on the street, unable to find a home they can afford. Even common-sense solutions like building Navigation Centers often gets caught up in red-tape and subject to NIMBY demands
We support: housing-first solutions where we leverage existing inclusionary zoning to build more affordable homes, along with better, more efficient services that provide shelter for the unhoused such as navigation centers and supportive housing. We also support anti-eviction and rent stabilization measures to prevent renters from becoming homeless.
San Francisco’s Supervisors have allowed frivolous complaints and lawsuits to delay and kill important projects including bike/bus lanes, housing, and small business openings
We support: replacing supervisorial discretionary powers with clear, form-based rules that are fair to everyone so that our politicians can spend more time working on helping their constituents. We also support initiatives to help save our small businesses by simplifying the permitting process.
SFPD is used as a catch-all to deal with all problems in the city, from homelessnes to traffic stops. This is an inefficient use of resources that takes work away from solving actual crimes.
We support: reforming the police so that they focus on violent and organized crime, while redirecting mental illness and homelessness crises to non-armed officials who are more equipped to handle it. We should also automate traffic enforcement which will make our streets safer and reduce racial bias in traffic stops.
Schools are an essential part of our community and the key to our future. SF could have the best schools in the country and there's no reason we shouldn't.
We support: prioritizing a safe return to in-person learning. More broadly, we believe that the Board of Education's decisions should be made with our students and teachers in mind, rather than all-too-common political posturing.
Our restaurants, bars, music venues, and other small businesses make SF the city it is. They define the culuture of San Francisco and make it unique and special. We have to support them, especially now.
We support: making it easier to open and run a small business in SF. That means making permitting simpler and quicker, emergency support during the pandemic, and creating shared spaces that can be used by small businesses.
Climate Change is real and caused by humans, and in California, automobiles are the number one source of carbon emissions. There is a wide range of evidence showing that living in a city has a lower carbon footprint than living in the suburbs.
We support: building more housing in urbanized coastal areas with temperate weather, strong public transit, and minimal fire risk. This will reduce VMT (car vehicle miles traveled) and counteract the status quo of development sprawling further into fire zones, which is driving ever-worsening fire seasons and unhealthy air quality. Furthermore, we should create incentives for new buildings to be environmentally efficient.
