The two-year process for the Housing Element 2022 Update launched with an informational presentation at the Planning Commission. Both the Commission and the public comment offered support and guidance, and emphasized being bold in our policies centered in racial and social equity.
Communities across the country are in protest against police brutality, catalyzed by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, amongst many others. These acts of resistance are about broader institutional racism affecting the lives of Black and Indigenous communities, and other communities of color.
The San Francisco Planning Department acknowledges our role in perpetuating past and current racial harm. The Housing Element 2022 Update will include policies that promote racial and social equity for these communities.
Policy is a reflection of a community’s vision and values, which in turn, influences our city’s culture. We particularly want to elevate the voices of those that have been most impacted by historically discriminatory housing policies including low income residents and people of color. Our goal is that in doing so, we can change San Francisco’s culture of exclusion to one that is more inclusive, equitable and just.
Bring your voice into this process; here are some of the outreach tools that you can already engage in:
Webinars and virtual discussions will be organized soon; we will send an update once they become available.
