“I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Mayor Lee’s passing and send my heartfelt condolences to his family and the City of San Francisco.

“Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of honoring Mayor Lee for his work to preserve and advance reproductive freedom in the city of San Francisco. Mayor Lee’s tireless commitment to innovating new ways to advance reproductive freedom for San Francisco residents and all those who come to San Francisco for care inspired others around the country to step-up and do more on behalf of their residents. His legacy on behalf of women, young people, and families is impactful and lasting.”
