In justice-minded San Francisco, city of billionaires, why are thousands of people left unsheltered during a mandatory shelter-in-place? In this video, you will learn about San Francisco’s tent encampments, the city government’s choices, hotel rooms and concrete ways to help. Special guest Kelley Cutler, an organizer for the Coalition on Homelessness, speaks with individuals in encampments and shares her experiences as a professional champion for the homeless and poor. Rev. Victor Floyd and Alison Faison, Calvary staff and actively involved participants of Faith in Action Bay Area, will join Kelley in a discussion and Q&A on how we can better understand and help our most vulnerable neighbors.
The Coalition on Homelessness is an advocacy and social justice organization that focuses on creating long-term solutions to homelessness, poverty, behavioral health treatment and housing issues, founded in 1987 by homeless people and frontline social service workers in San Francisco. The Coalition on Homelessness has also founded the newspaper Street Sheet, the Community Housing Partnership, and the Western Regional Advocacy Project (WRAP). For more information visit cohsf.org
