In a symbolic but powerful resolution that might even make our neighbors in far-left Berkeley a bit envious, the Board of Supervisors took time on Tuesday to pass a resolution thoroughly affirming the rights of its citizens. Introduced by Board of Supervisors President London Breed, it was swiftly adopted by the Board in response to the bigotry espoused by President-Elect Donald Trump and the ratification of hatred his election signifies.

[The San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ Response to the Election of Donald Trump]

Resolution responding to the election of Donald Trump and reaffirming San
Francisco’s commitment to the values his election threatens.

WHEREAS, On November 8, 2016, American voters elected an erratic, ill-informed
racist and misogynist as President; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That no matter the threats, San Francisco will remain a Sanctuary City.
We will not turn our back on the men and women from other countries who help make this city
great, and who represent over one third of our population. This is the Golden Gate—we build
bridges, not walls; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we will never back down on women’s rights, whether in
healthcare, the workplace, or any other area threatened by a man who treats women as
obstacles to be demeaned or objects to be assaulted. And just as important, we will ensure
our young girls grow up with role models who show them they can be or do anything; and, be
FURTHER RESOLVED, That there will be no conversion therapy, no withdrawal of
rights in San Francisco. We began hosting gay weddings twelve years ago, and we are not
stopping now. And to all the LGBTQ people all over the country who feel scared, bullied, or
alone: You matter. You are seen; you are loved; and San Francisco will never stop fighting
for you; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we still believe in this nation’s founding principle of
religious freedom. We do not ban people for their faith. And the only lists we keep are on
invitations to come pray together; and, be it
Supervisor Breed
FURTHER RESOLVED, That Black Lives Matter in San Francisco, even if they may
not in the White House. And guided by President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century
Policing, we will continue reforming our police department, and rebuilding trust between police
and communities of color so all citizens feel safe in their neighborhoods; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That climate change is not a hoax, or a plot by the Chinese.
In this city, surrounded by water on three sides, science matters. And we will continue our
work on CleanPower, Zero Waste, and everything else we are doing to protect future
generations; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we have been providing universal health care in this city
for nearly a decade, and if the new administration follows through on its callous promise to
revoke health insurance from 20 million people, San Franciscans will be protected; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we are the birthplace of the United Nations, a city made
stronger by the thousands of international visitors we welcome every day. We will remain
committed to internationalism and to our friends and allies around the world—whether the
administration in Washington is or not; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That San Francisco will remain a Transit First city and will
continue building Muni and BART systems we can all rely upon, whether this administration
follows through on its platform to eliminate federal transit funding or not; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That California is the sixth largest economy in the world. The
Bay Area is the innovation capital of the country. We will not be bullied by threats to revoke
our federal funding, nor will we sacrifice our values or members of our community for your
dollar; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That bigotry may have won an election, but it cannot change
who we are, and it will never change our values. We argue, we campaign, we debate
vigorously within San Francisco, but on these points we are 100% united. We will fight
