With the release of its Strategic Plan, MEDA has re-envisioned its work via five measurable results to be achieved for the San Francisco Mission District community by 2020.
This is blog #4 of 5 that will detail these five results.
Result 4: San Francisco Latinos are Decision-Makers in the Institutions and Political Systems that Affect Their Lives
Definition of result
Latinos in San Francisco are civically engaged and create a comprehensive advocacy agenda leading to service and policy solutions that address systemic challenges to their housing, income and educational needs, and hold elected of cials, policymakers and institutions accountable for carrying out a Latino-focused agenda.
Description of need
Latinos comprise 15 percent of San Francisco’s total population, yet they are signi cantly underrepresented in elected and appointed positions, and vote at lower rates than other racial/ethnic groups. MEDA’s Mission Promise Neighborhood survey showed that most respondents are involved in their community, but few do so through formal institutions, governing bodies and civic engagement.
MEDA will be creating outcomes for the community around Result 4. This blog will showcase our results being achieved.
