I love San Francisco. This city will forever be my home. However, the growing gentrification and displacement puts a huge burden on low income to middle class families. With the new wave of "Techies" moving to San Francisco, marketing for housings has dramatically increased. I've even heard of stories where people experienced a 300% rent increase simply for living in an area without rent control. As much as I love this city, I feel like there is growing tension in the atmosphere. Especially with the police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Aside from our societal issues, the city itself is great. It has everything in it. Transportation is at your beck and call, and can take you anywhere-- from Japantown to Ocean Beach. Lastly, people are incredibly friendly and understanding. I'd love to live in this city as long as I can. However, the only thing in my way, is the growing prices of living.

As for someone who supports the Black Lives Matter movement, I have a strong opinion on how the Police handle situations that they are specifically trained for. As a POC, I personally don't feel safe in the hands of our police force. There have been way too many cases where people were wrongfully convicted and killed simply for being a POC. Even after our previous Chief of Police retired, I still don't have much reliability within our police force. As of recently, there were leaked text messages of our local police officers making racist remarks. Therefore, in a city where there is a predominate amount of people of color, I fear for our safety everyday with our corrupt police force.
Issues within housings isn't a matter of vacant or abandoned properties. Instead, there is a huge issue with the cost of living. Rent continues to grow at an exponential rate. Displacement is causing many families who lived in SF all their lives to have to move elsewhere.
