HOUSING FOR WORKERS

 

Together with a strong coalition of community, housing and labor partners, JwJ scored a major victory for the city’s low and middle income workers as we pushed for and won SF’s “Housing our Workers” legislation. Introduced by Supervisor Haney, the legislation will generate over $400 million in funding in under a decade for affordable housing for workers and transitional housing for homeless people—all paid for by developers building large offices in the city. 

In deepening our support for “Housing for Workers,” JwJ also partnered with UESF and SEIU 1021 to do tenants rights trainings for over 50 union members.
