Organizational Structure & History:
The Coalition was founded by Chinese for Affirmative Action, Chinese Progressive Association, Community Youth Center, Chinatown Community Development Center, and New Breath Foundation. Collectively, the Steering Committee has over 150 years of experience leading progressive racial justice initiatives in San Francisco.
Formed in response to long-standing incidents of violence, crime, racial tensions and anti-Asian racism, the Coalition for Community Safety and Justice (CCSJ) is committed to developing community-centered solutions to mitigate violence across all communities of color. CCSJ has developed a 3-pronged approach, which includes the creation of a citywide rapid-response network, public safety infrastructure, and piloting cross-racial healing programs. It seeks to bring together communities of color affected by violence in San Francisco to provide services to survivors and victims and to press for and model the type of investments that will reduce hate and violence in the short and long term.
