Holding the District Attorney Accountable to Criminal Justice Reform

Holding the District Attorney Accountable to Criminal Justice Reform

SF Rising is teaming up with the ACLU of Northern California to co-convene the SF District Attorney Accountability Alliance. We want to make sure that whoever holds the office of district attorney in our city is committed to upholding justice and public safety for all of our communities. The alliance will bring together community, civil rights, legal, labor and other organizations committed to hold whoever becomes the next San Francisco District Attorney accountable. Our priorities will include: 

  • Holding police accountable when they break the law
  • Maintaining and advancing criminal justice reforms that reduce incarceration and racial bias
  • Upholding public safety and law enforcement priorities that focus on rehabilitation and treatment, victims’ services, and long-neglected priorities such as protecting workers’ rights

San Franciscans deserve a DA who will work to eliminate the inequities in our criminal legal system and keep all of us safe.

Cancelling ALL Student Debt and Making College Free for All

Cancelling ALL Student Debt and Making College Free for All

While we are excited about President Biden's announcement to cancel $10-20k of student debt per loan borrower,, we know that over centuries, racist institutions and policies have left many BIPOC students without generational wealth and we are forced to take on more debt than our white peers. Cancelling only $10-20k will still disproportionately leave much of our community with debt while clearing white borrowers' debt. We all deserve to access higher education without bearing the heavy burden of student debt. That's why we are fighting for total student debt cancellation and free higher education for everyone.

 

Gearing up for 2024

Gearing up for 2024

2024 is going to be a huge year for electoral change. There will be races at the local, state, and federal level and we want to make sure that our communities are registered and equipped with the knowledge they need to feel prepared to vote next year.
