Join a hearing on the unconstitutional homeless encampment sweeps that Supervisor Matt Haney called in direct response to our phone calls and continued pressure.
Despite a 2018 court ruling the practice to be unconstitutional and inhumane, the SFPD and the Department of Public Works (DPW), collaborating with the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, have continued the practice of "sweeps": forced relocation and property confiscation of those living on the streets.
Very few politicians have been willing to publicly acknowledge these facts, but Supervisor Haney has given us a rare opportunity to spotlight the lack of services available during winter storms and the ensuing sweeps.
Show up in person to send a clear message to city officials: we will not tolerate cruelty in our city. The hearing is scheduled to be held in Room 250 of City Hall.
