Homeless Shooting in San Francisco; What’s Next for Oakland Housing Wars

Lynette McElHaneyAnother police shooting in San Francisco — this time Luis Gongora, a homeless man who’d been living on the sidewalk. Two night later, police raid the encampment where Gongora had been staying — we talk to Jennifer Friedenbach of the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness. Plus: the Oakland City Council has unanimously approved a 90-day moratorium on rent increases and evictions–so now what? We’ll speak to the councilmember who sponsored the moratorium, and long-time housing activist James Vann.

Guests:

  • Jennifer Friedenbach, Executive Director of the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness
  • Lynette McElhaney, Oakland City Council President
  • James Vann, Co-founder of Oakland Tenants Union
Hosted by Brian Edwards-Tiekert and Cat Brooks; Produced by Linda Khoury
