I'm Autumn Hope Looijen (loy-in), and I'm running for Supervisor in District 5.

If you supported the school board recall or bringing algebra back, you've already voted for my work.

I launched the school board recall because the isolation of closed schools gave my kids a mental health crisis... and instead of reopening our schools, the school board was renaming them.

When we asked the people of San Francisco for help, every neighborhood in the City voted to replace the incompetent school board with great, practical leaders.

Now the school district is focused on making sure our kids can read and do math -- practical solutions for our public schools.

But while the school district is on the right path, our City is still in crisis.

And our current Supervisor Dean Preston is part of the problem.

He stood by the school board leader who made anti-Asian tweets and sued our schools for $87 million
. Instead of protecting our children, he protected his friend.

And instead of protecting the 806 people who died of drug overdoses last year, Dean does not believe in arresting the drug dealers who prey on them. He blames capitalism instead of taking responsibility for fixing the suffering on our streets.

We need a Supervisor who will focus on practical solutions for the people of San Francisco... a Supervisor who knows that our problems may be persistent, but they can be solved by bringing people together.

Public Safety and the Drug Crisis

Last year, 806 people in our city died of drug overdoses.

Kids step over needles on their way to school.

Street conditions and crime closed the Tenderloin's grocery store, making it hard for families to get fresh food.

We need to enforce the law and protect our community while also keeping our compassion for the people dying of drugs.

We can and must do both.
Cleaning up City Hall

We're one of the richest cities on the planet, spending $14 billion a year... yet we're struggling to get the basics right.

We waste money like crazy, and every dollar we waste is a dollar that could have been spent to help someone.

Every nonprofit who receives city funds should be delivering results. If not, their money should be redirected to get the services that the people of San Francisco paid for.
Thriving Neighborhoods

It's the little things. The garbage on your streets. The dying tree outside your house that you wish the city would take care of. The unfenced dog park where your neighbor's dog ran into the street.

We need a City that works relentlessly to make our neighborhoods shine.

Because whether you're sitting pretty or are struggling to get by, you deserve clean streets and a thriving community.

Meet Autumn

I grew up in Kirkland, WA, the daughter of a public school teacher. I knocked doors for clean water for two Seattle summers, and cooked gado gado with my Indonesian grandmother, who'd survived internment camps as a young woman in WWII. I edited the Caltech student newspaper and co-authored a book on pranks.

At the dawn of the internet, I worked at Netscape, where we used 30,000 volunteers from all over the world to organize the web. Our open-source data was used for Google's initial crawl, and our project was the inspiration for Wikipedia.

In Dec 2020, I moved to Lower Haight with my partner Siva and our kids.

I launched the school board recall with Siva, and we took our movement from literally zero (we knew about six people in SF) to a landslide that won every neighborhood in the City.

Most recently, I ran a campaign to bring algebra back to middle school. My community worked with the school district, the city, and the people of San Francisco to bring algebra back -- and it worked. This fall, for the first time in a decade, our 8th graders will be learning algebra.
