The San Francisco Anti-Displacement Coalition was formed in 2013 to address the wave of evictions and landlord harassment forcing thousands from their homes and neighborhoods. The Coalition supports the upcoming ballot measure that would tax the ‘flipping’ of apartment buildings that is fueling and exploiting our housing crisis. The speculator tax, inspired by legislation originally proposed by Harvey Milk just prior to his assassination, is designed to stabilize the housing market in our city. It aims to make the San Francisco housing market more affordable for people looking to stay in the city and make it their home, rather than an investment tool bankers of bankers and speculators who are driving up prices for both prospective home owners and renters.
