Prop I no eviction

Mission District artist Rene Yanez was interviewed on ABC 7 about the displacement happening in the Mission.

CCHO co-director Peter Cohen was featured in ABC 7’s recent piece about the displacement ravaging the Mission and Proposition I, the measure that would temporarily pause market-rate development in order to come up with solutions to stabilize the neighborhood.

Mayor Lee, also featured in the piece, claims that, “If we stop building housing – be it market, middle income, or low income – we’re gonna kill ourselves.”

CCHO responds: “Sometimes you need a cooling off period, to step back, take a wider view of what’s happening and come up with a solution.”
