In 2021, San Francisco Heritage committed to boost cultural equity within our preservation work. We are revising our activities and programs to meet this responsibility, and installing a framework to measure success and accountability. This equity report card helps us monitor our progress.
For a look at our ongoing activities, visit sfheritage.org/equity. If you would like to offer your ideas or comments on our work, reach out to Kerri Young at email@example.com.
Below are some highlights of our progress over the past quarter:
- Created a page on our website dedicated to our ongonig commitments to racial and social equity.
- After a formal presentation by Woody LaBounty and Kerri Young in February 2021, the Heritage board reviewed and passed a resolution formally adopting a commitment statement (written in full above) and policy for the prioritization of equity in all Heritage activities.
- Joined the city-led Survey Advisory Group (SAG), whose discussions are informing the upcoming Citywide Historic and Cultural Context Statement and Survey. This work will prioritize intangible and cultural heritage.
- Began work with the American Indian Cultural District (AICD) on a native-led process for documenting significant tangible and intangible sites within the district.
