Malia Cohen (born 1977) is an American politician currently serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors representing District 10, consisting of Bayview-Hunters Point, McLaren Park, part of the Portola, Potrero Hill, and Visitacion Valley.[1]

Born in the Richmond District and a graduate of Lowell High School, she presently resides in the Potrero Hill neighborhood.[1]

In the 2010 election, she initially finished third out of a field of twenty-two, but eventually won the election based on ranked choice voting.[2]

In October 2013, Cohen introduced legislation that expanded an existing San Francisco law making it illegal to sell firearms with magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. The gun-control legislation passed unanimously.[3]

In 2013, Cohen introduced the Fair Chance ordinance, barring employers and landlords from asking about an applicant's criminal history, which passed the Board of Supervisors unanimously.[4]
