SFLDC seeks to embody and give voice to the needs and priorities of Latinos living,working and owning businesses in the City and County of San Francisco which reflect the interests and needs of all the American people. We are committed to helping the poor and disadvantaged, protecting the most vulnerable among us, and ensuring that all Latinos are given meaningful opportunities in our city. This commitment is fulfilled by promoting the reduction of the rising rates of poverty; increasing access to education for all; insuring that there is a level playing for minority businesses to compete in the public sector; insuring that there are sustainable economies to participate in; pressing for increased access to health care; fair treatment of immigrants and ending the displacement of working class Latino families from traditionally Latino neighborhoods.
SFLDC’s goals emphasize a pragmatic outlook toward leadership development that require learning political skills via hands-on political campaigns. By effective fundraising, effective precinct operations, voter registration, proper utilization of the mass & social media and voter turn out, to influence and gain political power to be heard.
