Our Eviction Law Needs an Upgrade Now

The SF Board of Supervisors is now considering legislation that would substantially increase protections against evictions.   Eviction Protections 2.0 would address and correct loopholes in the rent control ordinance that result in the evictions of hundreds of tenants each year (see our previous report on this page).

The real experiences of tenants best explains why we urgently need these changes.

Consider the testimony of this San Francisco teacher at the July hearing on the legislation.
