*** PRESS RELEASE ***
SAN FRANCISCO LAUNCHES NEW CAMPAIGN TO UNITE COMMUNITIES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION


The Stand Together campaign is focused on uniting San Franciscans against discrimination and bias, and includes a series of monthly Town Hall events

Mayor London N. Breed today announced the launch of the Stand Together campaign to denounce and combat discrimination in San Francisco. The campaign, organized by the San Francisco Human Rights Commission and community leaders, began today with a Town Hall about anti-Asian discrimination. Over the coming months, the City and community will host a series of public Town Halls with community leaders to work collectively to address bias and discrimination. The Stand Together campaign will also include community inspired artwork and youth-led projects that will attempt to repair community relationships that have become especially strained during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"San Francisco strives to be a city that celebrates all of its diverse communities, but we know that racism and discrimination persist, and have been heightened due to COVID-19," said Mayor Breed. "It's important that we talk about what we can do to support each other, and that we don't shy away from calling out racism and having hard conversations. We need to send a strong signal that San Francisco will not tolerate racial discrimination and that we will stand together to oppose hate. This will take concentrated work to keep up this momentum, and our Stand Together Town Halls and campaign gives us a platform to work together and create a more just and equitable city."

"The health and social disparities exploited by COVID will only expand if we do not stand together," said Sheryl Davis, Executive Director, Human Rights Commission. "Our liberation is linked. If we are going to address the many pandemics happening at this moment, we have to be united in our fight!"

The Stand Together campaign and monthly Town Hall series is designed to address racism against communities of color and the need for cross-cultural relationship building. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, xenophobic and racist remarks and actions have resulted in the increase in anti-Asian hate incidents nationally, including in San Francisco.
