Trevor is a SFUSD public school teacher, a union member with the United Educators of San Francisco, and a nationally recognized LGBTQ+ civil rights activist with the proven experience of taking on tough fights and winning.
He's running for Supervisor because City Hall is broken and D9 is demanding commonsense solutions for change that only an outsider can bring. Trevor has proven experience of taking on tough fights and winning, and he knows that we can deliver clean streets, safer neighborhoods, thriving small businesses, and fight for our progressive values at the same time. Because we deserve a city that works.
Working for the Human Rights Campaign for over 6 years, Trevor traveled the country organizing against transphobic legislation from Juneau, Alaska to Charlotte, North Carolina and defended hard-won LGBTQ+ civil rights gains. He’s helped lead seven marriage equality campaigns and many nondiscrimination campaigns by building historic bipartisan coalitions, doing the tough community organizing work, and holding politicians accountable.
A passionate member of his Mission District neighborhood, Trevor serves on the Eastern Neighborhoods Citizens Advisory Committee. When he learned that the Mission had 20% less crosswalks than the wealthier, whiter Pac Heights neighborhood, he successfully led the effort to bring $200,000 to ensure equity in crosswalk coverage for the Mission, protecting our children and seniors.
Because of his reputation as a problem-solver, Gov. Newsom appointed Trevor to be an outside voice on the CA State Board of Pharmacy where he’s taking on Big Pharma and fighting the deadly opioid epidemic by voting to empower small pharmacists to initiate addiction treatment with Medical Assisted Therapy and expanding the definition of overdose prevention drugs to get new treatments accessible faster. Trevor has also stood with small business pharmacists by overseeing the largest update in pharmaceutical regulations and labor standards in more than a decade. Trevor has been in long-term recovery and brought recovery meetings inside San Francisco jails, he knows we need to address this deadly crisis now.
When hate crimes spiked in San Francisco, Trevor joined community patrols and put groundbreaking safety technology in the hands of the AAPI community at no cost as Director of Government Affairs and Public Policy for the Citizen App, a tool that puts public safety information in the hands of the public and increases police transparency.
Trevor is the only candidate in the race who joined with the majority of D9 voters to recall the School Board because he knows our kids and teachers deserve better than the failing status quo.
Trevor has been laser-focused on advocating for his community, serving on Equality California's Board of Advisors and as a member of Coro Northern California, and volunteering weekly at the SF-Marin Food Bank at the peak of the COVID pandemic.
Now, Trevor’s running for D9 Supervisor because San Francisco is demanding commonsense results for change. He knows that delivering clean streets, strong schools, and safer neighborhoods while promoting our progressive values isn’t mutually exclusive. We can do both. We just need leadership to get it done. Trevor’s the problem-solver who packs a punch for our progressive values that we need now to fix San Francisco.
