The Coalition on Homelessness, San Francisco (COH) initiates program and policy changes that result in the creation of exits from poverty. The COH unites homeless people and service providers with concerned community members in outreach, advocacy, and community organizing activities to ensure that low-income communities are in a leadership position in the work to promote social justice in San Francisco.
Conservatives are pushing hard for a law that would criminalize homeless people, day laborers, SRO residents, youth in low-income neighborhoods just for sitting. Not blocking the sidewalk. Not harassing pedestrians. Just sitting. Learn more, and find out how you can get involved.
