50 Years Since the Chilean Coup; Plus, SF Plan for Housing Homeless

San Francisco Supervisor Dean Preston has introduced legislation that would push the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing to fill half of its 1,002 vacant supportive housing units and remain at a vacancy below five percent moving forward. We’re joined by Supervisor Preston, who represents District 5, which includes the Tenderloin, the Haight, the Fillmore, Japantown, Civic Center and the Western Addition.

Then, today marks the 50th anniversary of the US-backed coup in Chile against Salvador Allende, so we’ll spend the next portion of the hour with an audio documentary produced by our friends at the Freedom Archives, called “The Promise of Freedom“. Today, we air the first half of that audio documentary. The second portion will be aired tomorrow (Tuesday, September 12th). If you’re interested in diving in deeper to the Chilean coup 50 years ago today, the Freedom Archives has amazing resources on their website – check out their Chile archive here:
