Chi’chil Bildagoteel (Oak Flat) is a sacred site for the San Carlos Apache—a place to pray, collect water and medicinal plants, gather acorns, honor the people who are buried there, and perform sacred ceremonies.

3. Wednesday, 12Noon, Rally to Stop the SIP (Shelter In Place) Hotel Closures

In person

Tilden Hotel
345 Taylor St.
SF

Join the Stop the SIP (Shelter In Place) Hotel Shutdown Coalition, unhoused neighbors, and allies for an outdoor rally outside of the Tilden Hotel to urge the city of San Francisco and Mayor London Breed to keep the Shelter In Place (SIP) Hotels open and to move unhoused people off of the streets and into these hotels. 

In January of 2021, the Biden administration, in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, announced that across the country, local municipalities will be fully reimbursed for the cost of housing people in hotels, who are currently experiencing homelessness through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) through the end of the year.  Meanwhile the city has closed down more than five hotels and has three more they are shutting down this fiscal year. It is unacceptable and dangerous to not utilize this resource!

ALL ARE WELCOME.

When California’s SB 1421 was signed into law, it opened the door to previously hidden police files. KQED went to court with a cadre of lawyers and assembled a coalition of media partners to uncover and expose misconduct, abuse and criminal behavior by agencies and individuals engaged in law enforcement in California.

Through records requests, tough reporting and litigation, the California Reporting Project has brought secrets to light, gained the compliance of unwilling agencies and amplified the stories of victims.

Learn firsthand from the creators of the KQED and NPR podcast On Our Watch how this work led to the show. Get behind the scenes insight on the legal battles from the lawyers who fought them, and learn how to request and use police records to hold California agencies accountable.
