The 6 Wins for Social Equity Network (6 Wins) strives to build a region where tenants, workers, and low-income communities of color have the decision-making power and resources we need to thrive. We are a coalition representing labor, environment, faith-based, tenant-organizing groups, and policy advocates.
We develop intersectional policy solutions and campaigns. In 2010, Urban Habitat and Public Advocates co-founded 6 Wins to ensure that regional planning decisions and investments would be shaped by the voices and needs of those most impacted by policy decisions in the Bay Area. We have made clear the relationships between regional development patterns, climate justice, and racial justice and advocated for regional solutions to address these interconnected inequities.
Ten years later, we face an unprecedented confluence of crises during the COVID-19 pandemic: public health, racial injustice, economic inequality, and government austerity. We are working to rebuild the systems that have failed during these crises to ensure that they will be equitable, racially just, and environmentally sustainable.
