Former Chief of Police Greg Suhr named as advisor to the San Francisco Historical Society: Here is the history that the SFHS omitted from his bio!

The San Francisco Historical Society has named former San Francisco Chief of Police Greg Suhr to its advisory board, omitting in his bio his contentious history as Chief of Police (2011-2016). By naming Suhr an advisor and providing an uncritical biography, the SFHS provides a perfect example of how historical records are created for and by those in power, while burying their fraught involvement in class conflict and racial genocide and oppression.
In honor of the Indigenous, Black, People of Color harmed and murdered by those in power on stolen Ohlone land, Justice for Luis provides the missing chapters of Greg Suhr’s tenure as Chief of the SFPD that the SFHS deliberately omitted.
