Statement on Mayor Ed Lee's Passing

We are deeply saddened and shocked by today’s news of Mayor Ed Lee’s passing. Mayor Lee grew up in public housing and as a practicing attorney fought for the housing and civil rights of many San Franciscans. He made it his passion to devote his life to public service.  He served the City he loved for more than 40 years, working in different capacities, through the San Francisco Asian Law Caucus, heading the Human Rights Commission, Director of Public Works, City Administrator, and ultimately Mayor of San Francisco. After completing a 16-hour day, Mayor Lee suffered an apparent heart attack at the age of 65 and was rushed to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.  

Mayor Lee was a lifelong Democrat and the first Chinese American Mayor of San Francisco.  Given the history of discrimination against the Chinese community, we know that his election was a great source of pride for our residents and city.

Our hearts and thoughts are with Mayor Ed Lee’s family--his wife Anita and his two daughters Brianna and Tania.  This is a time to remember Mayor Lee's life and accomplishments and for our City to come together.

San Francisco Democratic Party's Executive Committee Statement Denouncing President Trump's Decision to End the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program

We, the undersigned members of the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee’s (DCCC) Executive Committee, denounce President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). This program allowed nearly 800,000 individuals whose parents brought them here as undocumented children to live, work, go to school, and thrive in the United States, in the only country they know.

Trump’s action is cruel, cowardly, and will go down in history as one of the most callous acts by any U.S. President. Trump did not even have the nerve to make the decision himself but instead had Attorney General Jeff Sessions do his dirty work.

As leaders of the San Francisco Democratic Party, we want to send a clear message to all the DACA holders and other undocumented youth that you are not alone, and that we are ready to stand in solidarity with you. The San Francisco Democratic Party is ready to fight alongside you to make sure you have the right to stay in this country, a country which belongs to you as much as it does Donald Trump.

Ending DACA is not only morally wrong, but it is bad for the U.S. economy. More than 90% of DACA recipients are presently employed. With the elimination of DACA, about 1,400 DACA permits will expire each day, which means that the U.S. economy will lose an average of 30,000 DACA employees each month. It is estimated that removing DACA recipients from the U.S. workforce would cost the U.S. economy more than $430 billion over the next 10 years. As President Obama criticized, rescinding DACA is self-defeating.

We therefore call upon San Francisco’s and California’s congressional delegations to do everything they can to make sure that Congress passes legislation to restore the rights of all DACA recipients before the March 5, 2018 deadline and recommit to comprehensive immigration reform that builds a pathway to citizenship for our country's 11 million undocumented immigrants

“As a former undocumented youth, this is very personal to me. Donald Trump cruelly turned his back on the American Dream. But try as he may, Trump will not kill the American Dream, which will be alive so long as we continue to fight for it," said DCCC Chair David Campos.

We believe that this will be a turning point not just on the issue of DACA but on so many issues that demonstrate that Trump continues to push a white nationalist agenda that leaves the majority of Americans out in the cold.

Sincerely,

David Campos, Chair

San Francisco Democratic Party's Executive Committee Statement Denouncing White Supremacy and President Trump’s Statements

The San Francisco Democratic County Party’s Executive Committee strongly denounces the domestic terrorist acts and violence of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 11-12. Hatred and racism are not welcome in San Francisco and should have no place in the United States.

The Executive Committee of the San Francisco Democratic Party rebukes the President’s claims of equating peaceful anti-racist protestors with Neo-Nazis. We grieve the death of Heather Heyer, a peaceful demonstrator for justice, and for those injured because of the actions of white supremacists in Charlottesville. As our country mourns, it is yet another call to action that we all must do more in combating the plague of racism in our country. There is no time for complacency as there are not “many sides” to this. It was the actions of white supremacists that plowed their car through a group of concerned citizens exercising their right to counter-protest.

However, what is most troubling is that many white supremacists and Neo-Nazis feel emboldened by what took place in Charlottesville and affirmed by the President’s remarks. Rallies organized by extremist groups are now being planned across the country, including here in San Francisco this coming weekend.  

"We cannot let what happened in Charlottesville happen again. We call upon the National Parks service to revoke the permit it issued allowing a white supremacist group to rally at Crissy Field on August 26th,” said David Campos, Chair of the San Francisco Democratic Party. “San Francisco is a City of tolerance that values diversity. The group's message of racism and hatred is not welcome in our City."

As we see the mobilizing forces of white supremacy emerge in San Francisco, it is important for us to keep our San Francisco Democratic values at heart. We must continue to create spaces of inclusion and realize that when Charlottesville becomes San Francisco we must stand with and protect our most vulnerable people. It is critical for us to start and continue conversations about race and privilege to further challenge and dismantle white supremacy.

Sadly, the racism, white supremacy, anti-Semitism, homophobia, and misogyny that fuel hate groups didn't start in Charlottesville, and it will not end unless all of us mobilize to dismantle these systems of oppression. Our nation needs leadership that promotes healing, unification, and transformation to live up to our values of respect, equality, diversity, and freedom.

This President does not speak for us, and never will. We condemn hatred, bigotry, and violence against the diverse people of our great city and our nation. We embrace action and hope, and we call upon all Democrats to work towards real solutions to dismantle white supremacy and promote restorative justice.

In solidarity,

David Campos, Chair
Petra DeJesus, First Vice-Chair
Keith Baraka, Second Vice-Chair
Pratima Gupta, Third Vice-Chair
Leah LaCroix, Fourth Vice-Chair

 2016 Democratic Platform

 

The Democratic Party believes in empowering the people of our nation and champions the values of inclusion an opportunity.

We believe in reforming our criminal justice system, gun safety, and good-paying jobs for our people.This includes increasing the minimum wage, the right to form and join a union, and our commitment to public education.

The Democratic Party, for the first time, has come out for the abolition of the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment, and stands for an end to the era of mass incarceration.

The Democratic Party is committed to the protection of women's reproductive rights, the pursuit of universal health care, the expansion of Social Security, and fighting for comprehensive immigration reform with the goal of keeping families together, providing legal counsel for unaccompanied minors, and ending private detention centers.

The Democratic Party calls for the reform of Wall Street, and for breaking up financial entities so that never again is being "too big to fail" an excuse for inaction. Trade should not put corporate profit ahead of workers' rights, labor standards, or public health.

And, finally, the Democratic Party recognizes the urgency of clean energy and the reality of climate change and is dedicated to making our country run on clean energy.
