Housing/Gentrification


Presence, Prayer & Procession of the Housed for the Unhoused

As I looked up at a bus stop on my route home, I recall thinking about the choice I had in that moment to show up or plead exhaustion and go home. Home. I have a home. The irony that I was choosing between going back to the comfort of my house or to a rally explicitly for the housed to show up for the unhoused is more obvious to me now.

415 Day

415 Day at La Raza park. The faces are there, the faces, the minds, the bodies, the gestures that refuse to disappear. 415 and the temperature hovers between 415 degrees and 415 degrees below zero. The city sometimes feels like a freezer but as Al Robles said, "Soon the white snow will melt". All the young sisters and brothers flashin' Frisco badges of honor. Those tattoos, those scars, the letters SF in bold letters cut into the flesh, bruises of valor, bruises of honor, bruises of survival that no cop's badge can kill.

Shot Down on All Levels

“Some niggers got shot up!” Was the announcement made on one of the gentriFUKer’s blog, referring to this past weekend’s deadly shooting in the Fill-no-more community Saturday evening. One 25-year-old man lost his life and 4 others were injured when suspect(s) opened fire on the corner of Eddy and Fillmore streets.
