How San Francisco is Advancing Racial Equity

Lunchtime Forum

While San Francisco is one of the most progressive cities in the country, racial inequity persists throughout all strands of individual and community life. Education, criminal justice, jobs, housing, public infrastructure and public health are all impacted by ongoing, systemic discrimination. In collaboration with the city’s Human Rights Commission, more than 20 city departments are working proactively to achieve racial equity and advance opportunities for all. Join us for a conversation with some of the departments that are changing the way they do business.
