Coleman’s Campaign for College, Jobs and a Secure Future for All!
San Francisco’s Black, Latino and Pacific Islander families are struggling to stay in the city they call home. Every year, more families are pushed out of San Francisco because of the high cost of housing, the lack of quality jobs and safety net services, and a public education system that is not adequately preparing students for college or career. Join Coleman Advocates in our fight to make San Francisco a place where families can stay and thrive, over the long-term. Tell the city that you support quality education, quality jobs, and a secure economic future for all!
