News about the emergent omicron variant of COVID-19 puts a clear truth into focus – there is no post-COVID era. We are still living through a pandemic, our lives are still being disrupted, and our friends, family, neighbors, and comrades are still being endangered as much by the viciousness and indifference of our government as we are still facing the impacts of the pandemic.
That’s why it’s so urgent we show up to make San Francisco’s District 5 an eviction-free zone. District 5 supervisor and DSA comrade Dean Preston has declared his district an eviction-free zone, and folks need to know about it! First, you can help phone bank every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. from tomorrow to December 22 to call tenants living in District 5 and tell them about their rights and how to apply for rent relief. You can register to help out here!
We’ll also be hosting an Eviction-Free BBQ on Saturday, December 11 at 1:00 p.m. in the Panhandle (corner of Baker and Fell). Come out to connect with your neighbors, build community, and learn more about eviction protections and rent relief. You can help make it a success by joining our lit drop at the same location (corner of Baker and Fell) on Sunday, December 5 at 12:00 p.m. to give folks in District 5 fliers about the BBQ and how they can protect themselves against their landlords. Check out the District 5 Eviction-Free Zone website for more information! Together, we can build community and build strength, and show ourselves the care and compassion the market by its nature can never provide.
