"I am a Coleman Sustainer because I really, really, really want the city I grew up in and love to be a place where ALL families can thrive, where all my friends and classmates from across the city can stay and live and raise healthy families for generations to come." - Michael Gast
I am a Coleman Sustainer because San Francisco's working-class communities of color need strong institutions that invest in their leadership, cultivate their vision, and believe in their capacity to transform their schools, their communities and themselves--Coleman Advocates is just that, and as with any strong institution, it needs stable, robust support." - Mario Yedidia
"I'm a Sustainer because I believe in the power of the work Coleman members do on a daily basis. Coleman supported me to develop the skills, analysis and confidence to stand up for what I believe in and organize for change. Coleman helped raise me, and I look forward to it being a big part of my daughters' lives as well. Being a Sustainer allows me to stay connected to this organizatnoi that means so much to me and my family and community." - Veronica Garcia
