The Green Party of San Francisco is the provincial-level affiliate of the Green Party of Sierra in the province of San Francisco. The party was founded in 1971 and is currently led by Chris Norman and its headquarters is based in Pacifica. The party is one of the largest provincial affiliates of the Green Party and is also one of the most active and fastest growing. The party is party of the Progressive Coalition, an electoral alliance in San Francisco, alongside the San Francisco Democratic-Republican Party and the Social Democratic Committee.

The San Francisco Green Party plays a major role in Sierran green politics as it has been the most vocal in addressing climate change. The party has also played major roles in having the provincial government address the issues, invest in infrastructure meant to protect citizens from natural disasters and worked on an economic stimulus plan known as the San Francisco Environmental Protection Program, which passed in 2020. The Green Party currently holds 20 seats in the San Francisco Provincial Assembly and as part of the Progressive Coalition is supported by the Democratic-Republicans and Social Democrats. The party also has three members in San Francisco's delegation to the House of Commons and over 400 officials elected to county and local offices across the province most notable in the coastal communities and fishing towns.
