Sun, Mar 24: Single-Payer, Medicare-for-All Health Care Talk at Unitarian Center   

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

SF Supervisors are considering implementing SB-1045, a conservatorship program for involuntary detention and treatment of homeless people with mental and substance abuse problems and frequent police-initiated 5150 3-day psych holds. San Francisco passed Prop C to supply real supportive housing and mental health services for all who need them. Let's do that before talking about detaining the homeless.    Read more about the issue here and here.  Read 48 Hills on this. Persons concerned with potential public health threats of this ordinance can sign a petition of opposition here.

 Read new Truthout article on SB 1045 conservatorship and nationwide drive to strip homeless people of their autonomy.
   Read the SF Weekly article Mental Health, Homelessness, and Civil Rights: SF's Crisis of Conscience.   Read more about 5150 psych holds and how they relate to SB 1045 conservatorship.

New: Sen Weiner is sponsoring new legislation, SB-40, to remove protective clauses in SB-1045 that its proponants say make it safe for San Francisco!  Read more here.  

Sat, Apr 6: Action Against Detention, Forced Treatment of Homeless People   

Stay Tuned: The SF Supervisors Rules Committee may be the only hearing with public comment on the new conservatorship, so it's important to have a big turnout. It meets Mondays at 10 AM weekly.  Please watch for announcement of the meeting.
