ADVOCACY FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

As a result of incredibly high rent prices, San Francisco’s low-income families, artists, seniors, activists, teachers, social workers and emergency responders have been forced to live in crowded conditions, work additional jobs, cut other necessary expenses or move to far-away areas, adding long commutes to their lives.

We believe that by taking an active role in anti-displacement and affordable housing activism, we are supporting these vulnerable-yet-valuable community members’ choice to live in San Francisco, and to keep their voices and creativity as part of our City’s larger feminist/progressive movement.

Currently The Women’s Building is Working to

  • Educate our clients, volunteers, staff, and the community on housing issues
  • Participate in community actions and campaigns
  • Support community efforts to stop luxury developments in the Mission District
  • Support community efforts to maintain and create more affordable housing
  • Provide meeting and coalition-building space for organizations working on issues of displacement
