Location Details:

London Breed and Pelosi and so many more express harrumph for the state of San Francisco's street culture of retail gang theft, fentanyl and meth mayhem, and unhoused population profusion. Indeed, today the Board of Supervisors deliberate Breed's emergency measures declaration for the Tenderloin neighborhood.

The Commons SF traces this all back to real estate debt. When a population is alienated from ownership of place, things fall apart. The current fave literary media show, Squid Game, reflects this powerfully. Financial and spiritual debt attached to mere existence is the issue, we posit.

You're welcome to attend an online introduction to next week's live walking tour exploring how the privatization of location rent ruins the esprit of a people and literally bankrupts the economic autonomy of millions of otherwise competent people.

If you're disgusted by the wealth divide, tired of the SFUSD's misplays, or searching for a perspective with grit beyond the palaver of "It's time for a change," this suppertime discussion hour will put snap in your synapses.
