Sf keynote panel
housing and homelessness
A family of four earning up to $117,400 in S.F. is classified as "low-income” by the federal government. Two full-time workers, making $15 per hour — more than $62k per year — can only afford to live in just 5% of the region’s neighborhoods. Low-income communities of color are hit hardest, but the pain reverberates throughout the region. Homelessness is a real and growing problem. How does a city deal with these challenges? What efforts are underway to help? What does success look like and how can it be achieved? Fred Blackwell, CEO of The San Francisco Foundation leads a discussion with KQED's Housing Reporter Erica Aguilar, Angela Jenkins of Kaiser Permanente, Caitlyn Fox of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Jennifer Martinez of PICO California, and the Mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf.
