DPH Must Divest
DPH Must Divest is a coalition that seeks to remove San Francisco Sheriff’s Department from the city’s Department of Public Health (DPH) clinics and San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH). We aim to reinvest the divested funds in our community and systems committed to trauma informed care, de-escalation, and community accountability.
Sheriff presence at DPH clinics and SFGH manipulates the concept of safety to police our patient’s bodies. This system perpetuates systemic racism without accountability. We must prioritize the well-being of our Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) patients and providers.
