Our Homes, Our Neighborhoods–
The Fight to Wake up the City,
and Take Back Control of Our Communities
Guest speakers Julien Ball / SF ACCE
and foreclosure and eviction fighters like Eviction-Free SF
On the heels of a foreclosure crisis that devastated the southeast side, San Francisco saw a tech boom.
Real estate speculators took advantage of the cheap land and are making super-profits off wealthier San Francisco transplants, while kicking long-time homeowners and renters out of their homes using foreclosures, rental evictions, and buy-outs.
Meanwhile, newer businesses in neighborhoods like the Mission cater to the needs of the wealthier residents; in one particularly egregious example, Local’s Corner, (an upscale restaurant,) has denied service to Latino residents in their very own Mission.
The needs of long-time San Franciscans are often ignored, and we are made to feel like strangers in our own neighborhoods.
And then, a trigger: Alex Nietos murdered by police in Bernal Heights.
Find out how our neighbors are banding together to fight to stay in San Francisco and control what our neighborhoods look like. And join forces with those of us who find unacceptable a dynamic where a beloved young man is shot in cold blood for looking too brown.
Time allotted for Q&A and discussion, and announcements.
