On September 19 at 11 AM, the Government Audit and Oversight Committee will be conducting a hearing regarding racism and discrimination in SF City & County Departments. Come and testify about discrimination you have experienced working for SF City and County. Workers across the City have spoken out about unfair treatment and unnecessary disciplines against their coworkers and the disproportionate targeting of African American workers. They’ve spoken out about the lack of diversity in some departments, citing that certain ethnicities are hired for particular job types based on racial stereotypes. Others have seen the disproportionate number of African American workers threatened with separation from probation if they did not agree to extend their probation period. We’re demanding an end to these threats and unfair treatment. We are asking city leaders to address the systemic issues leading to the unfair treatment of workers of color. Show that you stand against injustice, hate, and ignorance and join us at this hearing on Wednesday, September 19.
