SF Parent Coalition

SF Parent Coalition

Founded in the summer of 2020, SF Parents (formerly Decreasing the Distance) is a collective of 4,000+ San Francisco public school parents, students, teachers, and community supporters.

We center the needs of children and youth in San Francisco public schools by bringing together a diverse network of parents and caregivers to advocate for a thriving, equitable school system.


California historically underfunds public education, and SFUSD is now on the brink of state takeover thanks to this lack of funds and rampant local mismanagement. Kids and families need accountability for this avoidable mess from both Sacramento and our Board of Education.
