In February 2021, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Board of Supervisors President Shamann Walton, spurred by calls for municipalities around the nation to address racial inequities, announced a plan to reinvest approximately $120 million into the city’s African American communities through a new program called the Dream Keeper Initiative. This investment has been annualized in San Francisco’s general budget, with the first $60 million going towards projects — educational enrichment, guaranteed Income, culturally affirming spaces, housing and homeownership and more — that aim to disrupt historic disinvestment in Black communities by enhancing the services provided both by city departments and community organizations. Come explore the possibilities of the Dream Keeper Initiative and its vision for San Francisco’s future.

This public program is copresented by the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.
