Mapping Our Progress Towards Cultural Equity: April-June 2022

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 kyoung@sfheritage.org.

Below are some highlights of our progress over the past quarter:

  • Under the guidance of SF Heritage’s new President & CEO Karalyn Monteil, staff created a set of DEIA goals (alongside other measurable outcomes of performance and activities) to track both monthly and in quarterly review meetings.
  • SF Heritage testified in support of landmark nominations that represent the diverse array of San Francisco’s cultural heritage, including Diego Rivera’s Allegory of California fresco (155 Sansome St.), the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (2868 Mission St.), and the Takahashi Trading Co. building (200 Rhode Island St.).
  • SF Heritage donated to the restoration campaign for Juana Alícia’s 1985 mural Para Las Rosas/For the Roses, located on the façade of the San Francisco Mime Troupe Building (855 Treat Avenue).
  • SF Heritage promoted the Sunset Chinese Cultural District (SCCD) at Sunset Mercantile’s Lunar New Year Market on February 6, 2022, and received a certificate of honor from the Board of Supervisors for our continued participation on the SCCD working group.
  • We joined the Alliance of Artists Communities (ACA) network to expand outreach and inclusion in our artist-in-residency (AIR) program at the Doolan-Larson Building, and we invited diverse stakeholders to contribute to the development of our AIR program guidelines.
  • We updated our vendor list for wedding services linked with Haas-Lilienthal House rentals with a DEIA lens.
