Homeless in San Francisco

Ijane kimn San Francisco, thousands of homeless people are getting squeezed between the wind and rains of El Nino, and the upcoming flood of visitors for the Superbowl. We will bring you the voices of some of the people sleeping on the street, then talk to Jennifer Friedenbach of the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness. In our second half, supervisor Jane Kim joins us in studio – she’s introducing emergency legislation to make the city re-negotiate its deal with the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee – a deal that leaves the city on the hook for an estimated $5 million dollars in related expense.

Guests:

  • Jennifer Friedenbach, Executive Director of the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness
  • Jane Kim, San Francisco supervisor representing District 6; sponsoring emergency legislation directing the city to re-negotiate its agreements with the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee.
