Join activists, foreclosure fighters and elected officials as we talk about the state of the fight for housing justice in Bernal Heights, where neighbors have been organizing neighbors to keep each other in their homes. Discuss how our efforts fit into the rich history of organizing for affordable housing--in the neighborhood and beyond. Hear from supervisors and activists organizing to ensure that anyone fighting foreclosure has the same protections as tenants to stay in their homes; and discuss the next steps in the fight to make sure all San Franciscans have a right to safe, decent, affordable housing. Come to this event and find out how you can get involved in the movement for housing justice.
