At our February general meeting, we discussed the Homeless Bill of Rights. We received two emails about the topic. We believe they deserve a response. The emails and our response are below:
A CONCERNED CITIZEN
Hello, I am writing in response to the statement posted on your homepage about AB 5. I have lived [in the Haight-Ashbury] for [some] years and I am extremely concerned about the state of our neighborhood. I support efforts to help homeless people gain access to clean water, bathroom facilities, employment opportunities and rehab facilities. However, I feel that the homeless situation in the Haight is unique and different than homelessness in other parts of the city and that it is not appropriate for us to encourage it.
