Neighborhood Tenant Conventions
In May and June, 2017, the San Francisco Anti-Displacement Coalition (SFADC) hosted 9 conventions throughout the city, from the Richmond to North Beach, Chinatown to the Excelsior. The conventions included “‘Know Your Rights’ workshops, focused on common landlord harassment practices that tenants often experience in isolation, with a goal of empowering tenants to be part of a community that fights back. Additionally, tenants learned how to identify speculation in their neighborhoods, and how to support neighbors to resist evictions and development intended to displace our communities.
