M 22, Tuesday, 1:30pm – 3:00pm, Stop Evicting Children, Families, Educators, Child Care Workers NOW!
SF City Hall, Room 250
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Place
Urge our representatives to pass legislation that will prohibit landlords from (no-fault) evicting families with children, educators or child care center workers during the school year. It will cover all no fault evictions with the exception of Ellis evictions.
There are over 3000 homeless children living in intact families in SF and over 2,300 homeless children enrolled in SFUSD. Eviction is a driving force of homelessness.
Children deserve the right to housing and education. San Francisco needs to do more to protect its children, families, educators and child care providers.

I’m a Bay Area native who’s been covering public events nonstop since the Fall of 2011. I’ve been making films and videos since the late 1980s, when I graduated from San Francisco State University, and am currently writing a film I will produce after gathering a team of other artists to participate. I have well over 400 videos online and have sold footage to CBS News, Al Jazeera, 48 Hills and The Economist, among others. I work hard to support my community by making mostly free films that support the fight for social justice. You can view most of them at https://vimeo.com/user8978674.
