Sat May 3 2014 (Updated 05/04/14)Anti-Eviction Mapping Project's List of SF Ellis Act Evictors of Seniors and Disabled
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project has released "Ethel's List: The Dirty Thirty," a list of landlords and speculators who have all evicted at least one senior and/or disabled person through the Ellis Act over the last decade. Ethel, an activist and member of Senior and Disability Action, is extremely concerned about her senior community being forced out of their homes. To be senior and/or disabled and to be evicted can cause dire health effects, and at times death. Not only does one lose ones home, but also one's community, social support, and at times access to particular forms of health care.
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project list has information about tenants being evicted, as well as the companies affiliated with the evictors, including some tech corporations such as Google, BandPage, Adobe Systems Inc., Binnacle Systems, SF REV, Inc., and more. The project has also found that some of these speculators have bought properties at foreclosure auctions, with one currently residing in China.
