San Francisco Rising builds the political power of working-class communities and communities of color in San Francisco to lead the way for democratic governance that prioritizes racial, economic and environmental justice.

We are an alliance of grassroots organizations led by people of color, and a political home for San Franciscans who care about justice and sustainability. We build power through deepening multiracial solidarity, educating and mobilizing voters, working closely with policymakers, organizing, and developing leaders of color.

Volunteer Opportunities

 
Student Organizing

Given our national political context, as well as the crises facing our planet and our economy, young people need to be front and center of any movement is forging our path forward for future generations. Students and young people are already taking leadership across the country, and San Francisco Rising is part of this movement. We cultivate the leadership of young people of color, in particular, to organize, shape, and determine California’s future. 

We began organizing with students at San Francisco State University, City College of San Francisco and the University of SF, in the fall of 2017. Together, we are developing a school-to-organizing pathway of students equipped with strategic, culturally-relevant organizing skills who will actively support a political agenda of working-class communities of color. Our organizing alongside students has helped establish Student Liberation Committee (SLC) meetings, a space led by students, for students to discuss and address issues impacting their campuses and communities.

Because San Francisco Rising is a member organization of Power California, SF Students Rising members are part of a statewide network that organizes hundreds of thousands of young people of color and their families from diverse backgrounds as voters: Black, Latinx, API, Native, LGBT, currently and formerly incarcerated, undocumented and citizen. Youth of color make up 70% of the millennial generation in California and 50% have an immigrant or refugee backgrounds. Together, we are building a movement of young people and families of color to win policy victories, elect and hold leaders accountable and meet the aspirations of our communities.

Specifically, we inform, educate and mobilize young people of color and their families to engage in civic decision-making to transform their strength in numbers into real political power at the polls. We run phone banks and personally speak to thousands of young voters of color before every election so that our communities are aware of what’s on the ballot, are ready to vote, and know how to vote. Together with the Power California network, we registered more than 40,000 young voters between 2017 and 2019 and engaged more than 200,000 voters in elections during the same period.

This form is for individuals. If you represent an organization that would like to join San Francisco Rising as an affiliate please contact information@sanfranciscorising.org.

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!

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 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.
