In the past months, local tenant conventions in the Mission, Chinatown, Richmond/Haight, Castro, and SOMA/Tenderloin have brought together thousands of neighbors. Now is our chance to rally together, join a citywide conversation and solidify proposals that will seek to stem the tide of displacement, speculation, and Ellis Act evictions. Now is the time for change in the name of our City’s tenants!
Join tenants, activists, and members of the Harvey Milk Club this Saturday, February 8 at Tenderloin Elementary School from 12-4pm. The convention is being organized by the San Francisco Anti-Displacement Coalition and sponsored by many organizations, including the Harvey Milk Club.

Join your neighbors and the Milk Club on January 11, 2013, at 12pm at the LGBT Center (Market/Octavia) for a gathering of tenants from the Castro / Noe Valley / Diamond Heights / Mission Dolores / Twin Peaks / Duboce Triangle area to brainstorm strategies for fighting the evictions in our neighborhoods and defend those who are being evicted.
Participants in the convention will develop suggestions for a ballot initiative to be placed on November’s ballot. These suggestions will be presented at a citywide tenants convention in February.
If we are going to stop displacement in the Castro and other neighborhoods we need all hands on deck! Our strength is in our ability to organize our masses around specific solutions and we hope to see many of our members at the convention on Saturday.
