Tell the Supes: Every Tenant Facing Eviction Needs an Attorney!    9 AM: Rally on City Hall Polk St. Steps.  10 AM: Supervisor Hearing, Rm 263. San Francisco needs to fund legal services so that every tenant fighting an eviction has an attorney!  For vulnerable low-income and middle-income tenants, losing one’s rent-controlled or subsidized apartment is a certain path to homelessness, moving into an overcrowded or substandard apartment, or having to leave San Francisco and one’s community and support network. The number of evictions in San Francisco is dramatically increasing: In 2013, 3662 eviction lawsuits were filed in Superior Court and the Rent Board reported a 13% increase in eviction notices. The vast majority of tenants who are sued for eviction face those lawsuits “in pro per” – acting as their own lawyers. With over 2,000 unrepresented tenants facing eviction lawsuits every year, hundreds and hundreds of affordable tenancies are lost because of lack of access to tenant attorneys.    (back to top)

Kick-Off of Signature Drive to Put an Anti-Ellis Act Initiative on November Ballot.   

Anti-Speculator Rally
Saturday, April 26, 12-3 PM
SF Civic Center

An "Anti-speculator's Rally" to kick off a signature drive to get an Anti-Ellis Act
initiative on the November ballot will take place at Civic Center on
Saturday April 26th, 12-3pm. Twenty thousand signatures are needed by
July to place the initiative on the November ballot. Come out and show
your support. Call Fred or Tommi at Housing Rights Committee at 415-703-8634.

Over the last several months San Francisco tenants have engaged in a
series of neighborhood tenant conventions which provided a forum for San
Francisco renters to voice their concerns and formulate solutions to the severe
eviction crisis that has seen a 178% increase in Ellis Act evictions over the past
3 years. The neighborhood conventions culminated in a large citywide conven-
tion that took place in the Tenderloin.

As a result of the plenary, it was agreed that in order to rein in the out of
control evictions in the city, legislation specific to real estate speculation must
be introduced. It was agreed that legislation be crafted that would impose a
speculator's tax on those who purchase buildings and try to sell within 5 years.
Tenants and advocates agree that assessing a significant tax penalty would
take much of the speculation out of buying buildings with the intent to flip them
quickly to make a profit.
