San Francisco Proclaims It’s “Open to All!”

Today San Francisco became the first city to issue an official proclamation declaring it is Open to All. Open to All is the nationwide public engagement campaign to build understanding and discussion about the importance of protecting people from discrimination—and the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open to All.

Check out some of the photos from today’s event.

By joining Open to All, San Francisco is continuing its leadership in diversity and inclusion by pledging to welcome everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, age, immigration status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion or disability.

To commemorate the occasion, Mayor Breed and Supervisor Mandelman hosted a kick-off event in Harvey Milk Plaza in San Francisco featuring elected officials from across the city, community leaders, and business owners who have signed the Open to All business pledge.

Mayor Breed called upon businesses across the city to sign the business pledge and take a stand against discrimination. She also urged cities across the country to take similar action and proclaim that they are Open to all.
