A 16, Thursday, 4:00pm, Eviction-Free Zone Community Launch: Press Conference, Action and Mass Outreach Day
24th & Bryant St.
The first two months of this year alone saw as many as 50 eviction filings in the Mission, which has already been decimated by this housing crisis. So we’re taking back our neighborhood! Come out for the kick-off event to the Eviction-Free Zone in the heart of the Mission.
We’ll be holding a press conference, then marching to two buildings where at-risk long-term tenants are fighting to get their buildings bought by community non-profits to make them permanently affordable. Then we’ll be going door-to-door and business to business to do mass outreach in the neighborhood.
Come out to take back the Mission. NO ONE GETS PUSHED OUT!
When: Thursday, April 16, 4 PM
Where: 24th & Bryant (southeast corner)
