We'll donate $0.25 to a San Francisco nonprofit that builds, runs and manages affordable housing for the homeless.More than one-fifth of the nation’s homeless population now lives in California – and the problem is particularly acute in the Golden State’s major cities, like Los Angeles and San Francisco.
In San Francisco, Supervisor and State Senate candidate Jane Kim released this video calling for a state of emergency on the issue – so cities don’t have to go it alone as they struggle to house the growing population of the homeless, including veterans, seniors, families with children and now even the working poor who can’t find affordable housing in high-cost urban areas.
“Everyone should have a home to go to,” Kim says. “Everyone on our streets is someone’s son or daughter.”
Kim explains the need to build more housing – and how state grants that match local dollars can help make new housing for the homeless a reality.
Kim’s Call for a Declaration of a Statewide Emergency on HomelessnessGentrification, skyrocketing housing costs and staggering affordability issues have pushed out many of San Francisco’s working class families, and because the city has a density of services, it has also become a place for many looking for help. About one in five homeless San Franciscans were not residents of the city when they became homeless, according to a recent census of the homeless population.
Kim is asking the I Agree to See audience, which follows political media so closely, to help her address this policy challenge.
And we are answering the call. For the first ten thousand people who share this political ad on social media, I Agree to See will donate $0.25 to a San Francisco nonprofit that builds, runs and manages affordable housing for the homeless.
Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and neighbors!
**I Agree to See is supported by Storefront Political Media, which will make this in-kind contribution on behalf of the Jane Kim for Senate campaign up to the legal limit.**
