Today, the San Francisco Women’s Political Committee (SFWPC) announced its early endorsement of Mayor London Breed in the November 5, 2019 election. SFWPC’s early endorsement is a strong statement reflecting the organization’s overwhelming support of the policies and actions taken by Mayor Breed to address the challenges facing San Francisco.
“In just seven months since she has taken office, Mayor Breed has made a difference in our city, making progress on the challenges of building more shelters and mental health beds for homeless residents, speeding up the process of building more housing, cleaning up our streets, expanding paid internships through Opportunities for All, and creating a safer city for all of us,” stated Lia Azul Salaverry, Co-President of SFWPC.
“I am humbled and appreciative of SFWPC’s early and strong endorsement. The women of SFWPC are leaders on the front line of our continued battle for equal rights and policies that further gender parity. I’m so proud to have their support,” stated Mayor London Breed.
“As an organization committed to encouraging and supporting women’s engagement in the political process, we are extremely proud and honored to early endorse Mayor Breed, a strong female Mayor of color and a role model for women in San Francisco, California, and across our nation,” stated Kelly Akemi Groth, Co-President of SFWPC. “Mayor Breed continues to demonstrate her commitment to advancing gender parity in her decisions to appoint qualified women to leadership positions.”
SFWPC, established in 2002, is the largest women’s organization in San Francisco, comprised of women of all ages and political parties. SFWPC endorses female and male candidates, as well as ballot initiatives, and produces the only women’s slate card in San Francisco. SFWPC advocates at all levels of government for policy improvements that support gender equality and cultivate partnerships with other women’s organizations.
