City Funding Reallocation Update (Updated 12/15/20)

On June 4, 2020, Mayor London N. Breed and Supervisor Shamann Walton announced they would reallocate a portion of the San Francisco Police Department budget to better support the African American community. Mayor Breed and Supervisor Walton invited community members to share their ideas and input on the reinvestment of funding in a process facilitated by the San Francisco Human Rights Commission (HRC). In addition to circulating a survey citywide and accepting emailed comments, the HRC scheduled and hosted over a dozen meetings including on nights and weekends between June 23 and July 11 in an effort to gather comprehensive feedback from the public.
