Shaun HainesPride Community Award
Pride Community Award
For outstanding service to LGBTQ communities.Shaun Haines is a native of San Francisco and the founder of San Francisco Impact Partners. Shaun knows our people need our support, and he is here to see that we get it. He knows the experience of being a homeless individual youth and adult. He knows the difficulty and the challenges associated with getting a job because of the discrimination our most vulnerable communities often experience. He knows what it is to feel unsafe.
Shaun works to produce events to support and provide resources for our community. He serves on the San Francisco LGBT Cultural Heritage Strategy Equity and Economic Development Committee, to ensure that we always have a place in our city. Serving on the SF Police Chief’s LGBT Forum and Castro Community on Patrol, Shaun works to address our safety concerns. Supporting the Stop the Violence Campaign, he is working to identify Safe Zones for LGBTQ people. He is supporting our Trans, Leather, and Castro cultural districts to preserve our communities and commemorate the heritage of our people. In concert with LGBT leaders, in response to patriots and KKK bringing hate to our door, Shaun has been a voice and leader developing anti-racism resources.
Everyone that has experienced hardships here in San Francisco has been demanding safety, dignity, and opportunity. Building a coalition with leaders to co-create resources and solutions will achieve these goals for all. In many LGBTQ organizations, Shaun helps to create jobs, improve our safety, and restore dignity to our homeless LGBTQ family. Working together to fight injustices, our efforts will preserve our city’s vibrant LGBT heritage, culture, diversity, and spaces. Shaun is committed to bringing you into the efforts that respond to our needs.
