Please join us! We are an all-volunteer, non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to helping to expand human rights and civil protections for which San Francisco is known world-wide. We are inspired by the groundbreaking work of the renowned San Francisco Human Rights Commission and seek to be a critical resource for the continuation of its essential work in a time of drastic cuts in public funding.

Congratulations to the SF/HRC HERO Awards honorees (front row)! They are joined by HRC commissioners and staff, as well as Supervisor Scott Wiener.
