Happy #InternationalWomensDay ! Meet Anya and Megan! They have helped champion and run San Francisco’s Healthy Nail Salon program, creating safer conditions for nail salon workers. Nail salon workers exposure to chemicals is an environmental justice issue. Most nail technicians are immigrants of low socioeconomic status and are often women of childbearing age. Our Healthy Nail Salon program helps protect worker health through support and training. We work with salons to identify and remove toxic products, reducing worker and customer exposure to harmful chemicals. Healthy Nail Salons use less toxic products, safer practices and better ventilation, so you can breathe easy knowing they are healthier for you, employees, and the planet. Thank you Anya and Megan! #PrettyShouldntStink #FacesOfSF

Thank you @Recology for sharing about Jo Hanson for #WomensHistoryMonth ♻️ . . . β€œJo Hanson was a prominent San Francisco artist and activist in the 1970s, eventually turning her attention toward cleaning up litter-strewn streets in her community. As a San Francisco Arts Commissioner for six years, Hanson championed the inclusion of underrepresented women and artists of color in the City’s art collections. In the late 1980s Hanson suggested to Recology and the City of San Francisco that they develop an artist-in-residence program at the Recology facility, which would offer studio space and stipends for emerging and established artists to create artwork from the waste stream, and raise public awareness about environmental issues. Now almost thirty years later, the Recology San Francisco Artist in Residence Program has been internationally recognized and awarded, and countless artists, children, and adults have benefited from Jo Hanson's vision.” Thank you, Jo.

Today we stood with Supervisors, Environment Commissioners, community partners, and climate activists as Supervisor Rafael Mandelman ( @rafiford8 ) introduced a resolution declaring a Climate Emergency. "We know the science is abundantly clear, we know we're going to have to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. We cannot afford to wait, we cannot afford to kick the can down the road. We've got to take urgent decisive action now." - @SFEnvironment Director Raphael #Cities4Climate ➑️ Full Link in our story

SF Commission on the Environment President Elmy Bermejo representing SF at the @c40cities #Women4climate conference in Paris! β€œI say this often because it is worth repeating – women around the world, and particularly women of color, pay an unfair and disproportionate burden of environmental degradation. This is unjust and it must stop. From breathing toxic fumes while burning fuel to cook to the chemicals we touch while working in factories or nail salons – women and women of color are paying a heavy price. We know that we cannot stand by any longer without taking action. Women4Climate is developing leaders in all nations by promoting mentorship, research and innovation.”
