Racial equity is at the core of our work as public defenders. Both inside and outside the courtroom we fight for services, strong outcomes and freedom for our clients, who are vulnerable low-income people of color. Public Defender’s Budget Priorities align with Mayoral Policy Priorities:
- Maintaining core services to enhance public safety in the City
- Advancing racial equity and serving vulnerable populations
- Supporting homelessness and mental health programs
We welcome any feedback you may have on our budget priorities for Fiscal Year 2021-2023. Please email us your input at PUBDEF-Budget@sfgov.org with the subject line: “Public Input PDR Budget FY 2021-2023”.
