Too often government programs and courts levy fines and fees on people, partly to generate revenue to balance public budgets. San Francisco is the first city in the nation to launch a Financial Justice Project to assess and reform how fees and fines impact our cities’ most vulnerable residents.
The Financial Justice Project has worked with more than a dozen city and county departments to advance reforms over the last year, both citywide and department to department. Come learn about how The Financial Justice Project has approached these reforms, from hosting a Fines and Fees Task Force that brought together community advocates and city departments, to working with the Mayor’s Budget Office to conduct a comprehensive audit. The Financial Justice Project is one of only seven finalists for the 2018 Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government Innovations in American Government Award.
