Upcoming RescueSF Speakers
CHA supports RescueSF whose mission is to “Bring Clean and Safe Streets to All San Franciscans”. RescueSF has two main objectives: first, to educate through their speaker series about the homelessness situation in San Francisco; and second, to build a citywide coalition that will advocate together with a united voice for effective solutions from City Hall, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C. 

As part of their education effort, they are hosting a speakers series, called RescueSF Speakers. You may or may not agree with everything a speaker says, but they think it's important to hear from all voices and perspectives regarding efforts to end homelessness.  Using this wide lens, we can all begin to see what is working, what is not, and what needs to change. Once we have these shared insights, RescueSF will formulate a position on effective policies, and use their citywide coalition to ensure that we are heard.  Click here to read their current newsletter - includes information on latest San Francisco Mental Health legislation.

The past talks with Dr. Margot Kushel of UCSF and Chronicle Reporter Kevin Fagan, can be viewed as the full talk or shorter segments at https://www.rescuesf.org/past-events .
