Aging Women, Housing Rights & Domestic Violence in San Francisco
The connections between domestic abuse and homelessness, issues that are increasingly affecting an aging population of women in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, and leaving some women sleeping in plastic chairs. Do we have a real quest to invest in affordable housing in San Francisco? Or is City Hall too focused on tax breaks for new downtown businesses inviting higher rents? What are our priorities as we move forward as a City and as a nation?
