Why We Fight!

Raise Up San Diego, founded in 2013, is a broad community coalition fighting for economic justice. We are pushing San Diego to reflects the diversity of our communities by creating a County where anyone can afford to live, work, and thrive.

We envision a San Diego that provides a healthy living and working environment for all, with fair wages, safe working conditions, accessible and affordable housing and transit and a safety net to support people in times of crisis. The voices of working people need to be heard and valued, not just business interests.
