There’s no stopping youth voting power

By Malini Saxena Voting is not what I thought it would be. But maybe it can be.  As the election season approaches, I reminisce on my younger self. An optimistic and dynamic kid, ready to grow up and be taken seriously, I loved all the cool, big kid things, and I knew...

Getting out the vote in 2024

Getting out the vote in 2024

This year is a huge opportunity for change for working-class communities and communities of color. There are ballot measures and 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 this year. We're teaming up with our statewide partners at Power California and California Calls to reach thousands of San Francisco voters. Join us as we engage with voters about being vote-ready for the March 5th Primary Election! 

Training college students to be effective organizers

Training college students to be effective organizers

SF Rising has been organizing college students on the three college campuses in San Francisco: USF, CCSF, and SFSU, to train them in being effective organizers on their campuses. We engage students through voter registration, campus events, and through our Student Rising Fellowship. We envision a future where everyone who wants to, can go to the higher education institution of their choosing without financial barriers standing in the way. If you're interested in joining our student organizing work, sign up to be a volunteer today!

 

Holding the District Attorney accountable to criminal justice reform

Holding the District Attorney accountable to criminal justice reform

SF Rising teamed 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 brings together community, civil rights, legal, labor and other organizations committed to hold whoever becomes the next San Francisco District Attorney accountable. Our priorities 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. If you're interested in joining our work to hold DA Brooke Jenkins accountable, sign up to be a volunteer today!
