M 28, Saturday, 1:00pm,Solving the Affordable Housing Crisis: A Town Hall Meeting (Location change)
2781 – 24th St (@ York St.)
Rents in San Francisco and in the neighborhood are going through the roof. Speculators are evicting long-time residents so they can raise rents, flip homes and sell off apartments for a quick buck. Increasingly, working families can’t afford to live here, and developers are building only for the 1 percent.
The housing market isn’t working! Join us as we discuss how we can fight to save our homes and make sure housing is for human need, not corporate greed.

According to the East Bay Express and eyewitness testimony, U.S. Marshals were surveilling a home in East Oakland when community organizer Jabari Shaw exited the building with his four-year-old daughter. Shaw and his daughter entered the car, driven by close friend Mary Vaillancourt. Federal officers, dressed in plainclothes, approached the car with weapons drawn but failed to identify themselves clearly as law enforcement. Unsure of their identity and fearing for her life, Vaillancourt accelerated away from the scene, prompting several unmarked cars to pursue them. When officers identified themselves as law enforcement by flashing their lights, Vaillancourt attempted to stop at a red light, but the car was rammed from behind by pursuing officers, propelling the vehicle through the intersection and into the back of a Paratransit van.
On Sunday, March 29th from 1-4 pm a fundraiser is being held to help with costs associated with incident.
Host: Tur-Ha Ak and Cat Brooks

— Smaller Caseloads for Special Education – Special Education students deserve high quality education & individualized attention!
— Money for school sites not upper admin! Send funding to school sites–more teachers, aides, counselors, staff, and supplies.
