Subject: Take Immediate Action on San Francisco Evictions and Foreclosures
As citywide elected leaders of San Francisco, why do you remain inactive and silent in the face of the foreclosure crisis? Predatory lenders are running our working, middle-class, and minority neighbors out of our communities. They are destroying what little income and ethnic/racial diversity remains in San Francisco.
Please speak out and take action immediately.
1. Demand that lenders declare an immediate moratorium on all for-profit evictions, foreclosures, and foreclosure auctions, and provide affordable refinancing, including principal reduction, to all households in foreclosure. If AG Kamala Harris can do it for the entire state, you can do it for San Francisco.
2. Enact a citywide moratorium on all foreclosures until the malfeasance identified in Assessor Ting’s report are investigated and corrected.
3. Urge John Stumpf, the CEO of home-based Wells Fargo, to meet with the people whose homes his bank is foreclosing.
4. Meet with Occupy Bernal, ACCE, and Occupy SF Housing to publicly declare your commitment on the above demands.
