The Super Easy Way You Can Help End Homelessness in San Francisco

The the folks at the Democratic Socialists of America and the Coalition on Homelessness have teamed up for a really incredible new measure that will “house over 4,000 families, youth, and adults; provide intensive mental health and substance abuse services; prevent 7,000 households from homelessness through legal assistance and housing subsidies; and ensure that there are 1,075 new shelter beds and keep our streets clean by funding dignified bathrooms and showers.”

An the way they plan on doing it is extra incredible “If passed it would put .05% tax on any San Francisco based company that makes over $50 million a year. This would bring in a whopping $340 million, more than doubling the current amount spent on homelessness services and supportive housing.”

I break it all down in this article right here.

Sounds amazing right? Well they need your help to do it. They still need to get signatures in order to get this on the November ballot and the deadline is Saturday.

There are two up coming events where you can show up and make a HUGE difference. This NEEDS to get on the ballot. The Wednesday event is right here and the Saturday event is right here.
