Five for Five: The campaign for gender balance in San Francisco leadership!
San Francisco’s long-awaited summer is finally here, which means that our political season is in full swing! In just 36 days, you will head to the polls with fellow San Franciscans to make critical choices about the direction of our great city. This November, we have the opportunity to elect the kind of leadership San Francisco needs right now: a diverse, gender-balanced Board of Supervisors that will ensure that going forward, our city runs like clockwork. We can’t afford to wait another 4 years.
Last month, at SFWPC’s August general membership meeting, our members voted on a fantastic slate of endorsements that highlight the common need for improvements on both the local and state levels. We are incredibly proud that this election cycle, our membership voted to endorse five inspiring, strong women candidates for the five Board of Supervisor seats.
Join the Campaign.
We know you stand behind Janet Reilly, Carmen Chu, Debra Walker, Rebecca Prozan, and Malia Cohen because you recognize how essential it is to shake up the Board of Supervisors – business as usual just won’t do anymore! But many voters out there are still in the dark about our candidates, and that is where you come in.
Show your unwavering support for gender parity in San Francisco’s leadership: email us your contact details, tell us who you are especially passionate about, and we will plug you into this epic campaign!
SFWPC has mounted an true field campaign to get these five best candidates elected. We are knocking on doors and calling voters to get the message of progress – the right kind of progress – out to the public. We need your help more than ever to get this done.
Each one of us needs to adopt a candidate and pick up the phone or hit the precincts today. SFWPC will be hosting the following evenings with candidates:
Monday: Janet Reilly
Saturday & Sunday: field projects
Pick up a window sign supporting Carmen Chu!
Make sure to email us to get credit for volunteering with SFWPC. Your time in the field counts towards voting in the next election cycle, and we will recognize our most vigilant volunteers at the 2010 San Francisco Women’s Holiday Party.
In August, you spoke decisively in favor of new political leadership, gender parity, and actualized equality in San Francisco. Now it’s time to put these five women on your calendar, because if we don’t make time to get them elected now, the opportunity to create substantive change will be lost.
With a little over a month left until election day, we need to pull out all the stops and show up up for our candidates.
We’ll see you out in the field.
