Statement on the passing of Mayor Edwin M. Lee

December 12, 2017

The San Francisco Pathways to Citizenship Initiative (SFPCI) began in 2013 under the leadership of Mayor Ed Lee and developed by the Office on Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs. Mayor Lee was a champion for Immigrants, communities of color and underserved communities, supporting the bimonthly Naturalization Workshops and bringing new funding partners to the Initiative.  Thanks to his support, SFPCI has helped over 8,500 Legal Permanent Residents become US Citizens.

Our Partners, Staff, Volunteers and Participants of SFPCI will always remember Mayor Lee’s kindness and his compassion for immigrant communities.   We are much saddened by his sudden death this morning; but we all pledge to carry on this important work in honor of Mayor Lee’s memory at every future citizenship workshop.

Our deepest condolences to Mayor’s Lee’s wife, his daughters, OCEIA and Mayor’s family at City Hall.
