The Black Employees Alliance and Coalition Against Anti-Blackness formed with the intent to provide professional development, coaching, education, and conflict management support to Black employees. The group consists of Black employees who are represented across almost all of the member labor unions. The group membership also consists of employees represented across more than 30 City Departments, and has a steady membership of more than 400 people, including a faction of White and non-Black employees who make-up part of the Coalition Against Anti-Blackness
While the group has represented employees in individual cases where Human Resources and departmental City leadership continues to fail Black employees, we have also supported both organizational and institutional changes in the providing the framework which led to the Mayor's 2018 Directive for a Fair and Inclusive Workplace, and the City's Racial Equity Ordinance.
Our main goal is addressing and responding to the ways the City and County of San Francisco perpetually inflicts anti-Black harm on its Black Employees. Attached is a document containing a series of news articles concerning the BEA.
