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 racialachievement gap
and the racialopportunitygap
indicate how far we still need to go to achieve true equity.
