In San Francisco, we say that we are a city that values opportunity, inclusion and community, and we have a responsibility to make those values real.
That means making sure all our mothers and families can be healthy, are enjoying stable housing, quality education and economic security, and can live in neighborhoods where we belong. It means connecting mothers and families to doctors and hospitals that respect our concerns and experiences. It also means confronting racism wherever we encounter it—whether in our education or health systems or in our communities—and doing everything in our power to stop it.
San Francisco can only prosper when all of our children have a fair chance to be born healthy and can reach their full potential, and when every one of us can live in communities full of opportunity. When we work together to ensure that our children, mothers and families can thrive, we create a better city for all of us.
