The San Francisco Human Rights Commission announced today that it will hold a public hearing on Native American issues in San Francisco.

“This will be a historic event for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission,” stated Commission Chair Khaldoun Baghdadi. “We are inviting speakers from many different sectors of the Native American community, so we expect a very comprehensive hearing.”

There are high numbers of homeless, poor Native American people who are not targeted by government outreach programs. The Commission will look at the issue of relocation and how intertribal tensions may affect community relations. And, the Commission will hear from local government on how San Francisco addresses these concerns and issues.

A report with Findings and Recommendations will be created from the information collected from the oral and written testimonies of community members, parents, youth, educators, academics, service providers, and City Department representatives. There will be time set aside for public comment.
