About SFOP

Our Congregations & Schools

SFOP/PIA is a nonpartisan grassroots coalition of congregations and schools working to create innovative solutions to the problems facing our region. We engage families, youth, and seniors in public life to create a safe, healthy, and livable San Francisco Peninsula for everyone. We work with Local Organizing Committees (LOCs) in over 60 congregations and schools representing 80,000 families to develop community leaders and grassroots campaigns. Each LOC determines its own priorities and develops solutions at monthly meetings.

I am involved with SFOP because I can empathize with the plight of so many people that are living in cramped and overcrowded conditions in San Francisco. As Paul writes in his first letter to the Corinthians, each of us can be a block in building a better life for others. Each one of us can become an instrument for others to see that hope is possible.

All four buses from San Francisco SFOP were full and they had to add a car for the overload; 208 of God’s people were on their way to join 3,000 in Sacramento to fight for healthcare for all of California’s children. All of us felt good about being there together as people of faith, knowing that having that faith we can build for further actions and finally will win.
