Public Advocates

Increasing access to quality education and economic advancement for low-income communities and people of color throughout California.

Category:

San Francisco, CA – EIN 237103042 publicadvocates.org

Everything we do at Public Advocates serves two goals:
To create opportunity and build community power. It sounds simple, but it’s not.
Doing both together requires the vision and persistence — some would call it stubbornness — to fight not just for individuals thwarted by poverty and discrimination, but for the far-reaching systemic change that few dare seek. Together with our partners, we tackle some of the most complex social issues facing California and our nation as a whole, all the while, building community power and raising the voices of those most affected by injustice.

In order to ensure meaningful access to opportunity, we advocate for quality education, affordable homes in all communities, public transportation that serves the needs of low-income people, and socially just and environmentally sustainable development.

Working hand in hand with low-income communities of color, we fight to reverse inequity in education, generations of housing segregation and unfair allocation of public and private resources.

– Access to Quality Education
Striving to ensure children receive a quality education that will prepare them for college and the workplace.

– Public School Funding & Accountability
Schools must have the resources they require and the funds that will help them to truly succeed.

-Housing Justice
Helping community advocates unearth inequitable and unlawful policies and challenge injustices in local planning.

– Transportation Justice
Working to obtain equitable funding and a fair share of funding benefits for bus riders through community strategies.

– Climate Justice
Based on the idea that the well-being of people and the well-being of the planet are inextricably linked.
