Strength in Numbers at Citywide Tenants Convention, 2/8


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.
