16th &
March in Mission For Housing Affordability and Against Speculation. The housing prices in San Francisco are at an all time high and only keep rising. The average rent for a one bedroom apartment is $3,120 a month. The average rent for a home that could accommodate a family (a 4 bedroom apt) is over $4,000 a month, read more here. These rental prices are out of reach for working class San Franciscan's of color and are pricing our folks out of their neighborhoods. Housing Speculation, the practice by investors of short-term buying and selling homes, or home flipping is one of the root causes of the housing and affordability our city is the middle of. We need to stand up and fight housing speculation, we need to stand up and fight the building of more and more housing that is out of reach for our community!
