Protest at Sunnydale in San Francisco, Saturday September 18th at 2pm

On Saturday September 18 at 2pm, resident organizers from Sunnydale public housing and the United Front Against Displacement will convene a rally outside the local San Francisco Housing Authority office at 1654 Sunnydale Ave to denounce recent attempts to push out residents from their homes. At the end of August, SFHA informed dozens of families that they had to leave their homes by November 1 of this year or face eviction. These housing units are slated for demolition to clear the land for developers Mercy Housing and Related California to continue building a “mixed income development” under a city privatization scheme called HOPE SF.

SFHA is now trying to rid itself of management of the property well before the end of the HOPE SF redevelopment through a process called “accelerated disposition.” This plan will transfer all leases of remaining townhouses in Sunnydale and Potrero Hill to the control of the Eugene Burger Management Corporation, a private property management company, by September 2022.
