Protecting Diversity

Another goal of our work is to prevent minorities, the working poor, families, and the disabled from being displaced out of San Francisco. Diversity is part of the essence of our city. Diversity means that our community welcomes people of every ethnic and racial distinction. But true diversity also means that we welcome those with fewer economic resources. What would San Francisco become if the people who cook our food, clean our offices, and inspire us with their art were excluded from living in the City? True diversity is only possible when affordable housing is available. By assisting tenants to remain in San Francisco, we help preserve the diversity and character of the neighborhoods that make San Francisco a place for people from all walks of life.
