“As a health worker, PSR is a home where I can find current information on what social responsibility in health means, and take action on things that are important, not just for health, but for our entire community.”
Dr. Rohini J. Haar, SF Bay PSR Board Member

Dear Friends:

As you know, policy changes such as improving air quality standards can in the aggregate save more lives and address inequities far better than anything we can likely accomplish in our individual work as health providers.

That understanding underscores the mission and work of San Francisco Bay Physicians for Social Responsibility (SF Bay PSR), and why we are asking for your support.

GIVE TODAY and your gift will be matched up to $15,000!

With your trust and investment, SF Bay PSR is able to mobilize healthcare professionals and advocates who tirelessly work toward policy solutions to the existential and intertwined threats of nuclear weapons, a climate crisis driven by fossil fuels, and vast and growing inequality and social injustice.

This year brought record-setting, deadly heatwaves across the globe and other life-threatening weather events; and the specter of nuclear war grows as the horrendous wars in Ukraine and the Middle East careen ahead without peace talks in sight.

But we also saw action—and together, our actions make a difference!
THANK YOU to all of you who signed action alerts, made public comments, wrote letters, met with policymakers, and made DONATIONS!

You’re helping us to do all this below and more!

  • Protect communities from the many health harms of fossil fuels.
  • Support Bay Area community-led environmental justice organizations working to protect their residents who are living near toxic sites and polluted transportation routes, and confronting the rising bay waters.
  • Nurture our future health-activist leaders through awards, internships, mentoring, curriculum development, and project micro-grants.
  • Counter the fossil fuel industries’ well-funded influence over policy makers and the media.
  • Educate the public about the intertwined threats of nuclear weapons, climate, and justice.

Check out our 2023 Accomplishments Report, and you will see the impact of your investment.

Together—we achieved a lot! To do all this, we need your help. Our staff and consultants ensure that you have what you need to advocate, speak and write, organize and lead. Your financial support will help us do more to support you.

PLEASE GIVE TODAY and your gift will be matched! If we raise $15,000, it will be doubled to $30,000!


Or, if you prefer to mail your contribution to us, please send a check to SF Bay PSR, 548 Market Street, #90725, San Francisco, CA 94104. Any amount that you donate will be much appreciated and used well!

If you find it more cost effective to donate stock, please reach out to our Executive Director Marj Plumb to arrange for that transfer at director@sfbaypsr.org.

We hope you’ll join SF Bay PSR and our network of almost 4,000 thoughtful, committed health advocates in the greater Bay Area in achieving more successes in 2024!

Peace and gratitude,

Robert M. Gould, MD, President
