To Our Community

Together, we can help move America toward a more just and equitable future. As an organization that appreciates and values our humanity, it is more important than ever that we as artists, creatives, and citizens be active participants in the struggle against bigotry, violence and hatred in any form.

The San Francisco Women Artists community stands in solidarity with those demanding an end to racial, economic and social injustice, particularly an end to systemic racism, an original sin of our nation’s long history.

We believe that Art both mirrors and elevates human experience and is thus a potent force in shaping culture. Through its potential to foster deeper understanding, through its courageous challenge to perceptions, and through a forging of deep human relatedness, Art can be one path to lead us to a more just world.

Committed to a sustained effort to foster positive social change through art, SFWA has throughout its over century history been at the forefront, challenging cultural and social paradigms. All peoples, their cultures, and their art contribute to the meaning and understanding of our humanity and should be honored and celebrated.

Resolving deeply ingrained patterns and structures of inequality will take sustained attention and dedication. Let’s do it together!
