SF Seniors, People with Disabilities, & Supporters: "Ellis Rights Out; Tenants Rights In"
A group of seniors, people with disabilities, supporters, and co-sponsors — Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, Senior and Disability Action, Eviction Free San Francisco, POOR Magazine, Gray Panthers of SF, Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, Bill Sorro Housing Program and the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment — confronted the San Francisco Association of Realtors on April 22. The group planned to deliver a letter of demands in person, but the Association had posted two SFPD officers in front of their office. A lone representative was sent outside to accept the letter. The activists remained and held a rally and press conference with testimonies from seniors and people with disabilities.

The press release issued by Seniors & Disability Action stated: “Seniors and people with disabilities, hard hit by the eviction crisis, will rally in front of the San Francisco Association of Realtors on Tuesday April 22nd to call for the Association, the city’s real estate lobbying group, to not oppose proposed legislation to the Ellis Act now being proposed in Sacramento as well as putting a moratorium on evictions for seniors and people with disabilities."

"The San Francisco Board of realtors has opposed legislation beneficial to tenants in the past, including any proposals that would expand rent control. San Francisco’s eviction crisis is out of control with a 178% increase in Ellis Act evictions over the last 3 years and the loss of 1000 units of rent controlled units in the last 2 years—10,000 since 1997. Seniors and people with disabilities have had enough.”
