This year we are proud to announce that we’ll be recognizing Causa Justa::Just Cause for the Immigrant Rights Award and Stephany Joy Ashley for the Housing Justice Award.

Causa Justa: Just Cause played a powerful leadership role in ensuring the passage of the Due Process for All Ordinance in San Francisco last year, which provides new protections for immigrants arrested but unjustly transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Not only staff, but dozens of members of the organization, mobilized to ensure that this policy was advanced.

Stephany Joy Ashley has worked for years to ensure access to health and dignified housing for some of our City’s most vulnerable residents, including SRO tenants and people living with HIV/AIDS.  As Executive Director of St. James Infirmary, she understands that addressing health inequities in our communities requires a multifaceted approach incorporating culturally competent direct services, community-based organizing, and policy changes that address poverty and homelessness.
