Welcome to our campaign for a safe and just San Francisco.
My passion for justice started at a young age. When I was a child growing up in the city, my mother was attacked and stabbed in a parking lot in San Francisco. A recent immigrant raising her two daughters on her own, my Mom survived and went on to raise her daughters to stand up, fight for what’s right and seek justice.
But, there was no justice in my Mom’s case – they never found the man who attacked her. The assault changed my life forever and started my journey to becoming a prosecutor.
From my time working under then-District Attorney Kamala Harris to prosecute crimes involving illegal firearms and domestic violence, to serving as the President of the San Francisco Police Commission leading reforms that resulted in a 30% decrease in police use of force, to helping to build the Center for Youth Wellness in the Bayview, I believe that the best solutions are always built in partnership with the community. I’m raising my three children here and I know the problems that our city faces are complex. But I also know that together we can build solutions that make our city both safe and just.
I’m running for District Attorney because I believe that all San Franciscans deserve to live, work and play in a city that is safe and just.
