Shaw San Liu
From Pam Tau Lee.
- Shaw San Liu, CPA’s Organizing Director, will be our new Executive Director starting January 2019. Over the last 12 years, Shaw San has strengthened CPA’s worker organizing, helped win the citywide $15 minimum wage, and built San Francisco’s minimum wage enforcement. She has been critical to strengthening community and labor partnerships and has grown our worker organizing team. As our new Executive Director, Shaw San is committed to nurturing CPA’s growth, honing our strategic position, growing our grassroots forces, and waging the bold campaigns that we need to build the society we want to live in. Particularly at a time, when our communities are under attack, we are lucky to have Shaw San step into this role as a mama to Kiluxin and a leader in our movement, with her tenacity, sharpness, humor, and deep commitment to building working-class, grassroots leadership.

Towards a Progressive Agenda for SF
Towards a Progressive Agenda for SF: A Progressive Vision for the November Elections and Beyond, Wednesday, September 22nd 2010, Center for Political Education.
- What is our progressive vision for an economically just city? How do electoral strategies play into the broader movement for building grassroots power, developing people’s consciousness, and creating more democratic structures? Will progressives be in a position to shape the mayoral race in 2011?
“Towards a Progressive Agenda for San Francisco” will bring together San Francisco Rising, SF Jobs with Justice, and the “New Deal for the City” Community Congress, to engage in a lively roundtable discussion about how these projects complement each other, in the context of the city’s ongoing fiscal crisis, the November 2010 elections, and beyond. We will discuss, among other topics, progressive revenue measures in November; developing labor-community alliances through Jobs with Justice, a platform for low-wage workers; the Congress’s economic development and budget reform agenda, and bringing a progressive vision to the critical District races in 6, 8, 10. Finally, we will hit some tough questions about developing strategies for common work, keeping elected officials accountable, and looking to the future. Panelists include:
- Chelsea Boilard and others with San Francisco Rising, an electoral alliance comprised of Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), Coleman Advocates, the Day Labor Program, Filipino Community Center, Just Cause/Causa Justa, Mujeres Unidas y Activas, People Organized to Win Environmental and Economic Rights (PODER), and People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER), and South of Market Community Action Network (SOMCAN);
- Gordon Mar with Jobs with Justice San Francisco
- Debbi Lerman and Calvin Welch with SF Community Congress, which convened in August 2010 to develop a locally actionable legislative agenda that might be taken up by progressive candidates for Supervisor in 2010 and Mayor in 2011.
- Shaw San Liu with SF Progressive Worker Alliance, an alliance of low-wage worker organizations in San Francisco, including Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), the Day Labor Program and Women’s Collective, Filipino Community Center, Pride at Work, People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER), and Young Workers United.
This is the second in an ongoing Center for Political Education series on building a San Francisco progressive agenda, following our July 2009 event about the history of District Elections and the broader movement to shape a progressive agenda.

Mabel Tsang wrote :Tomorrow I will be heading to DC with a #ItTakesRoots to Grow Resistance Delegation convened by Grassroots Global Justice Alliance / Climate Justice Alliance / Indigenous Environmental Network / Right To The City Alliance because I believe we can create an alternative to Trump's Terror. He stands for racist violence; aggression against women; criminalizing queer, gender non-conforming and transfolks; and detention of and war against immigrants and refugees - in the name of our future and our values.
- I believe the alternative exists today. I believe it already exists in my organizing work at Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) and I believe it exists in our dreams for our collective future. This moment scares me and this moment emboldens me. This moment shows me the need and the proof for powerful actions and bold experimentation. It calls on all of us to act.
