The forum was themed on galvanizing grassroots organizations, advocates and families to rally behind repealing the Costa Hawkins Act.
The day was long and informative, featuring presentations from the FCDC and three speaker panels on, “Victims of Gentrification”, “Organizers & Advocates” and “Policymakers”.
We were joined by special guests Daly City Mayor Juslyn Manalo, Daly City Councilman Ray Buenaventura, and SF County Supervisor (D6) Matt Haney.
Our keynote speaker was CA State Assemblyman Rob Bonta.
We thank Steve Arevalo and FCDC for organizing this forum and letting LEAD Filipino partake in and learn from the community conversations around justice for renters, preserving our neighborhoods, and mobilizing as a community.
