 **PLEASE ATTEND THE FINAL BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HEARING TO SUPPORT ANGELA CHAN'S REAPPOINTMENT TO THE POLICE COMMISSION ON TUES, APRIL 29th at 2PM at SF City Hall.**

We are a diverse coalition of individuals and organizations who work on issues around public safety, criminal justice reform,  domestic violence, housing rights, immigrant rights, and health and wellness.  We are proud to have worked with the San Francisco city government on a broad spectrum of policy initiatives.

On April 17th, the Rules Committee voted unanimously to nominate Angela Chan for a reappointment to the Police Commission.  At the full Board of Supervisors vote on April 29th, we urge you to confirm Angela's nomination to the police commission.

The police commission and its commissioners have been a vital component acting as community conduits to push the kind of reform that has positively impacted the lives of San Franciscans and their safety.  The commission is heavily comprised of individuals who come from law enforcement or former prosecutors.  For the purposes of balance, we think it imperative to continue to have an individual who has dedicated her life to civil rights and  has a proven track record of  addressing the concerns and needs of underrepresented communities, including immigrants, women, and people of color.   Angela’s record speaks for itself.

Tangible reforms that Angela has achieved include creating an officer training video on language access; adopting the Crisis Intervention Team Model, which has improved interactions between officers and those needing mental health services.  

Civilian oversight is vital to creating a more accountable police force. Participation of strong community advocates like Angela lends legitimacy to the commission and contributes to the diverse voices on the commission. 

We are urging you to please reappoint Angela Chan to the San Francisco Police Commission.  As a police commissioner for the past 4 years, Angela has dedicated herself to strengthening language access, juvenile and criminal justice, mental health services, and immigrant rights within the San Francisco Police Department. If reappointed, Angela will continue to be an independent and effective voice on the commission.  

 **PLEASE ATTEND THE FINAL BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HEARING TO SUPPORT ANGELA CHAN'S REAPPOINTMENT TO THE POLICE COMMISSION ON TUES, APRIL 29th at 2PM at SF City Hall.**

      Angela Chan was a reasoned and principled voice on the Police Commission and her service was dishonored by her lack of reappointment in April. Please return this valuable asset to the Police Commission!

      Ms. Chan has demonstrated a thoughtful, reasonable approach to police oversight from the perspective of those whom the SFPD are charged with serving and protecting. Losing her would be another huge blow to the community of the thousands of folks who already feel under siege from the rising challenges of surviving in the City & County. Please honor our already vastly under-served and put upon community by reappointing her!!!!.
