Town Hall Forum Tonight on City’s Homeless Policy Impacts
I tried to upload this entry earlier , but DNS errors or something prevented me from informing folks that local reps from the SFPD, City Government and various homeless services agencies and community members were heading down to UC Hastings civic center area campus to have a “Town Hall Forum” on the myriad of issues affecting the Tenderloin.
Confirmed speakers yakking as i write tonight include Ned Howey of Tenderloin Aids Resource Center, Tod Plummer of Legal Resources for Children and members of the neighborhood, and faculty and students involved with UC Hastings College of Law’s Race & Poverty Law Journal.
Also on the bill, Bill Bart of General Assistance Advocacy Project. The name of that non-profit group always befuddles me, because as a former skid row hotel dweller & GA recipient, why anyone would want to advocate you stay on General Assistance is beyond me… But I’m sure Bill and his pals have their reasons.
Event is open to the public and runs til 8 pm at 198 McCallister @ Hyde…
