The S.F. Housing Crisis

This event will include the widely respected slide presentation from Urban IDEA.

The housing situation in our fair City is dire and fast-changing. Housing prices explode; protests against evictions escalate; legislation is introduced at state and local levels; lawsuits are filed by the City Attorney.  Meanwhile, San Francisco leads the nation in income disparity.  How did we get here and which way is out?  Participants in a thought-provoking discussion, which will include audience Q&A, are: 

Tim Colen,  Executive Director,  SF Housing Action Coalition

Sara Shortt, Executive Director, SF Housing Rights Committee

Calvin Welch, founder, Council of Community Housing Organizations 

Brad Paul, Deputy Executive Director, Association of Bay Area Governments, will moderate.

The program is co-sponsored by Potrero Hill Democratic Club.   


WHEN: Tuesday, May 6, @ 7pm

WHERE: Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, 953 De Haro @ Southern Hts

    London Breed has been a disaster for D5. She herself grew up in public housing. But she has been silent on affordable housing and helping those less fortunate.

    Will someone be there to give an update on the current income verification process on-going at Mid-town Park complex. I understand several people who have lived there for years are now considered sublets and maybe displaced. Where does the D5 supervisor stand on this process? There was a promise of no displacements at the Bd of Sups meeting about the long-term residents.

      There will definitely be Q&A, & hopefully someone can address that, or you can talk to the speakers after. Supervisor Breed will likely not be present.
