Anti-Eviction Forum:
March 31 @ 1PM in the Mission

This is the kind of alert I approve of because it's to-the-point and gives the important details on where, when, who, why, what in the opening paragraph.

Only two bits of info need to be added. The closest cross street is 16th Street and two Muni bus lines, the 22 and 33 routes, get you near the meeting location.

There are many worthwhile organizations and good activists behind this meeting, and sure hope I can attend and participate. Here's the info:

Occupy SF Housing, a coalition of Occupy SF, SF Tenants Union, Causa Justa::Just Cause, Housing Rights Committee, Eviction Defense Collaborative, Occupy Bernal, AACCE (and more) is holding a Community Meeting this Saturday, March 31 from 1-3 PM at 1590 Bryant St. (Grotto Room of Sports Basement) to discuss and strategize how to stop evictions and foreclosures in the Mission District.

Neighborhood organizing, such as Occupy Bernal, aimed at bringing together residents as foreclosure & eviction fighters and defenders—has been a success story of the Occupy movement and has demonstrated that neighbors can unite and fight the big banks.

From the March 31 meeting we hope to develop a self-sustaining group of neighborhood residents working on an ongoing basis to fight evictions and foreclosures by big banks.

At the meeting we want to hear from foreclosure and eviction fighters who successfully saved their homes by pressuring banks and landlords with the help of their neighbors.
