The San Francisco Berniecrats are very proud to announce our early endorsement for Stephen Jaffe for Congressional District 12 in San Francisco!
Stephen Jaffe was a legal volunteer for the Bernie Sanders campaign in Nevada during the Democratic primaries, and has proven his progressive credentials through action. As president of the South Beach D6 Democratic Club, he fought against dark money in San Francisco by introducing changes to the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee (DCCC) bylaws, requiring Democratic Clubs to disclose their funding sources to the DCCC. This came on the heels of an intense election in which the SF ‘RFK Democratic Club’ laundered close to $1 million from Ron Conway, Airbnb and other investors to fund PACs for corporate Democrats in San Francisco. Stephen Jaffe is also an attorney who has fought for the disenfranchised. An example is that he represented six African American police officers against the City of Richmond for race-based discrimination.
Stephen is a staunch supporter of single payer healthcare for all (which Nancy Pelosi is against), getting the U.S. out of unnecessary wars, holding police accountable for their killings of unarmed people of color, ending the school to prison pipeline, fighting for affordable housing and against gentrification, defending women’s rights, and fighting against climate change with clean energy. We look forward to supporting Stephen’s campaign and finally giving speaker Pelosi “a run for her money”!
