Mayor Edwin M. Lee

"Now, more than ever, cities across the country must stand up and fight for equity. For more than two years, we have been working diligently to design and deploy a citywide municipal fiber network that will offer more options than currently available and ensure all of San Francisco is connected to a fast and affordable Internet.

We are working to ensure that robust Internet service is available to children looking to educate themselves, small businesses trying to expand their reach, and seniors seeking to access city services. This project aims to close the digital divide for the 100,000 San Franciscans, including 1 in 7 San Francisco public schoolchildren, who lack Internet access at home. Private industry has been unable to meet this need.

We have been building support by meeting directly with the community about their priorities and values through San Franciscans for Municipal Fiber. We have enlisted the help of the brightest academic, business and privacy experts from around the country to answer key questions as we finalize this undertaking.

While the Trump administration seeks to dismantle the Internet as we know it, we have a plan. Now, it is time to execute. We need your help. Join us in supporting an open Internet."

FCC seeks to end ‘open’ Internet but San Francisco has a plan

[...] the November election, the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates Internet service, agreed with this basic premise. Pai and his Republican allies in Congress are moving at record speeds to roll back existing consumer protections and privacy regulations. [...] Congress and the FCC collaborated to repeal broadband privacy...

Every so often, there are pieces of legislation heard at City Hall that have a major impact on home creation in San Francisco. Please support Supervisor Katy Tang’s proposed “local density bonus” legislation, which is the topic of our latest blog (www.sfhac.org/lets-take-home-s...).

In short, the Home-SF program:
- Provides 30% subsidized affordable housing on-site for low- and middle-income San Franciscans.
- 40% family friendly housing.
- No displacement of existing tenants.
- Extra fees for local schools.
- Only applicable in transit-rich and commercial corridors in San Francisco.

Passing this legislation would be a key win for the pro-housing movement, here’s how you can help.

1. Contact your Supervisor directly to make your voice heard - www.sfhac.org/contact-elected-.... Here are talking points - www.sfhac.org/wp-content/uploa....

2. Attend the May 8th Land Use hearing, RSVP to speak here - docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI...

Together, we can solve our region's housing shortage. Today, you can step up.

Thank you,
Corey Smith,
Organizer, SFHAC

Project Homeless Connect

Dear PHC Family,

On behalf of Project Homeless Connect, I am excited to celebrate with you the successes and accomplishments from 2016: www.projecthomelessconnect.org.... I trust that you will agree, PHC's achievements in service are unparalleled due to the tireless dedication of staff, volunteers, donors, and supporters. Together, we exemplify what it means to be a community, connected.

What makes PHC so special is the quality of care we offer to people in need. Thank you for helping make immediate change around homelessness in San Francisco. With your support in 2016:

7,428 basic care supplies, including clean socks and hygiene care were distributed.
4,836 vision correction services were provided, including screenings, readers, and prescription glasses.
4,596 people enjoyed a healthy meal at a Project Homeless Connect event.

These numbers only show a brief snapshot of our services. In total, 6,679 San Franciscans in need received life-changing services through PHC last year. All of those results were only possible because of supporters like you.

Through ongoing evaluation of our programs, we make sure that our services reach the people who need them most. The report includes testimonies, graphics, and pictures that show the success of a collaborative effort of a dedicated PHC community.
This report is also a chance for us to express our gratitude. We couldn't accomplish our work without you - thank you again.

It takes us all,

Kara Zordel
Executive Director

As we've reported, Supervisor Tang has spearheaded legislation called HOME-SF that would create homes for San Francisco's families and workforce through the use of a local density bonus. The measure will be up for approval at the Land Use Committee on May 8th. It's time for you to take action! Send an email to your Supervisor and let them know you want homes for the missing middle here: www.sfhac.org/lets-take-home-s...

Part of the strategy to address the housing shortage is education. People need to understand the problem and how to solve it. That's why SFHAC created a "Bay Area Housing 101" presentation. We'll come to your office and give a thorough 25-minute presentation that explains this complicated and nuanced issue. If you're interested, fill out the form in this new page on our website and we'll get in touch!
