SF Rising Action Fund is proud to announce our endorsement for Connie Chan for District 1 Supervisor. As a Chinese immigrant herself, we know that Supervisor Chan will continue to be a leader for working-class communities and communities of color in District 1. In her first term, Supervisor Chan prioritized public safety for all, supporting tenants and small property landlords, protecting workers, and expanding access to public transportation. Some of her notable accomplishments include:
Ensuring our law enforcement agencies administer victim services and justice equitably
Advocating for SFMTA to install safety improvements in District 1 where our neighbors have been injured, like protected bicycle lanes
Co-sponsoring the first Union-At-Home legislation to allow tenant organizing activities in buildings with five or more rental units after tenants raised concerns about corporate landlords refusing to negotiate rent relief or tenant rights issues during the pandemic
As Budget Chair, she worked hard to ensure that Single Room Occupancy (SRO)
housing, community farms, tenant counseling, and many other social services remained
intact for immigrant, low-income, and communities of color, all in the face of a looming
With all the work Supervisor Chan has done for her community in just her first term, we can’t wait to see what she will accomplish in her next four years in office!
