We Mourn the Loss of S.F. Mayor Ed Lee - Women's Foundation California
CEO Surina Khan and Mayor Ed Lee

We  are profoundly saddened by the untimely passing of San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee. Mayor Lee was a lifelong champion for gender justice and civil rights. We were so proud to partner with him on the Bay Area Women’s Summit to highlight the challenges faced by women, girls and LGBTQIA people and to showcase outstanding leaders and their promising solutions. His commitment to ensuring paid family leave for all City employees and investments in high quality, affordable child care can mean only one thing – Mayor Lee was a feminist. We offer our deepest condolences to his wife, daughters, family and his terrific team inside City Hall and throughout San Francisco.

This work is powered by you.

The feminist future we are building together in California is going to be built by all of us sharing our time, our money, and our skills.  Please consider contributing today.

Together We Are Unstoppable.
