Across the country, government officials are beginning to address their role in decades of disinvestment in Black and Brown communities as community advocates demand action to close the racial wealth gap and address racial inequities. San Francisco is no exception in violating the civil and human rights of its most marginalized communities throughout history, but the city leaders are now heeding calls for a more equitable future for all. San Francisco’s new Dream Keeper Initiative takes a necessary step forward, providing pathways to homeownership, access to additional housing, medical, and financial resources and guaranteed income programs for the city’s most disenfranchised residents. But can this program repair generations of harm? Where does the city go from here? Join our panel as they imagine dynamic and innovative actions to radically shift social outcomes across San Francisco.
