Homeless Sweeps Watch, Training


September 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Unite Here, Local 2
209 Golden Gate Ave
San Francisco, CA 94102

Come learn about criminalization and supporting our unhoused neighbors. The Coalition on Homelessness is creating a new community program, Sweeps Watch.

We will be educating unhoused and housed people in tactics for responding to Sweeps of encampments in our neighborhoods. We hope to build a network of solidarity, where housed folks are supporting the self determination of folks in crisis, with no where to go. We are doing this by building a network of rapid community responders that will have the skills to respond to police activity in their community safely and affectively.

We will have a more complete agenda closer to the date.

Some of what we will be learning about includes:
Filing claims against the city
How to document police activity and how best to take down a statement from a witness
Your rights during a police interaction
Strategies for fighting criminalization in SF

Please direct any questions that you may have to our Human Rights Organizer:
