3/19 Stop Evictions At Conard House-Open The Books On Lawyers And Defend Tenant Rights For SF Disabled

The Conard House which is a non-profit was set-up to help disabled people in San Francisco is now involved in illegal evictions.
They have moved to evict disabled tenants without a proper investigation and also have sought to intimidate tenants who also work for the organization.
The failure of public agencies to properly supervise these government funded housing operations is also a serious issue. The manager of Conyard House Mark K. Hile has also failed to provide information on the website since 2010 of funding of this organization. More and more public funds of this operation instead of going to the tenants and workers is going to the lawyers who are harassing whistleblowers. Conard House is already being sued by the ACLU for failure to protect the tenants because of improper training and oversight.
As the city privatizes more public housing and turns it over to so called "non-profits", the issue of accountability and systemic corruption of these operations must be confronted.
We need to defend tenants and the workers at Conyard Co-Op who face harassment and retaliation.
