What We Believe

Southeast Consortium for Equitable Partnerships (SECEP) believes that all residents deserve access to living wage jobs, health benefits, genuine business opportunities, and a voice in the projects that impact their community. Since 2010, SECEP has facilitated programs and policies to expand opportunity for San Francisco’s low income residents.  

SECEP currently focuses on building more effective, equitable participation in workforce and local business entity inclusion on public and private projects in close proximity to underserved neighborhoods. While we work to increase opportunity for all people in San Francisco, our primary focus is fighting to advance rights, safety, and full inclusion of low-income people of color.  San Francisco is considered a liberal bastion, but the racial achievement gap and the racial opportunity gap indicate how far we still need to go to achieve true equity.
