Supervisor Rafael Mandelman has called for a hearing on city policies to reduce homelessness next Thursday, February 28that 10am at the Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee. next Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10am at Room 263 in City Hall. He needs our attendance and our stories. He’s building a case that D8 needs more services to address the growing homeless/mental health/substance abuse on our streets, in our parks, and in our neighborhoods.
Rafael Mandelman has more personal experience with these issues than most human beings. This is one of his priorities, and I’ve seen him working methodically towards a solution for D8. He’s already gotten more City services to prevent wholesale camping in Dolores Park and to address the even greater numbers in the Castro. He’s committed finding service models that are proactive and effective at reducing the number of homeless in our district. And he listens to D8 stakeholders. Please come to City Hall on Feb. 28 to tell our city officials that the problem is growing, it’s intolerable for all, and we all need effective solutions … not just moving people around.
Please come to City Hall, Room 263, on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10am. Just being there sends a message. Standing up and talking for several minutes is even better.
