Our vision:

The African American Reparations Advisory Committee advises the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, the Human Rights Commission, and the public on the development of a San Francisco Reparations Plan.

The Plan will highlight ways that City policies have harmed Black lives. It will also include specific actions to address discrimination and inequities in areas such as housing, education, transit access, and food security. The Committee is comprised of 15 appointed members who work across several subcommittees.

Our mission:

The AARAC is a committee that develops recommendations for repairing harm in our Black communities.
