SAN FRANCISCO WOMEN’S POLITICAL COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES ENDORSEMENT OF VALLIE BROWN FOR DISTRICT 5 SUPERVISOR
The San Francisco Women’s Political Committee is proud to announce their sole endorsement of Supervisor Vallie Brown in the District 5 Supervisor’s race.
A longtime neighborhood activist with over two decades of community service, Brown has also served as a legislative aide to two former District 5 Supervisors. In her decade of service inside City Hall, Brown has advocated for and delivered tangible results on issues near and dear to District 5 residents — including affordable housing, childcare, public safety, transportation and education. Since her appointment to the seat by Mayor London Breed, Brown has also hit the ground running on fighting for women’s rights.
“Supervisor Brown has authored numerous pieces of legislation prioritizing gender equity since taking office,” says SFWPC PAC Co-Chair Sharon Chung. “We are especially pleased that the Supervisor has brought together SFWPC and various other women’s groups along with the Board of Supervisors to unanimously limit the city from doing business with states that have abortion bans.”
Supervisor Brown’s demonstrated leadership and advocacy for reproductive healthcare is just one of the many reasons for SFWPC’s support.
“It has long been common knowledge in our D5 neighborhoods that, whenever you needed something in the community addressed, you called Vallie Brown,” says SFWPC PAC Co-Chair and D5 resident Jen Longley. “It is rare in local politics that such a respected community advocate is given the opportunity to become a Supervisor, and we are proud that we are standing with her today. ”
Brown has been instrumental in several high profile efforts, including crafting legislation creating San Francisco’s first Vehicle Navigation Center, co-sponsoring legislation to mandate a day of awareness honoring missing and murdered indigenous women and creating the city’s first Office of Racial Equity, and securing $40 million to help renters stay in their homes through the City’s “small sites” acquisition program.
