These life-saving "how to be a housed ally to people experiencing homelessness" tips from Coalition on Homelessness are so need when City evictions, aka "the sweeps", are on the rise. Right now, SFPD and DPW aren't even pretending to follow protocol of giving notice, allowing time to move, or bagging & tagging belongings. It's blatant theft and harassment.

Key takeaways: be a good neighbor, treat folks with dignity, and DON'T CALL THE POLICE who aren't actually trained to handle these situations. This pdf includes numbers to call when seeing folks under mental or medical distress:https://www.cohsf.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/How-to-Be-a-Housed-Ally-to-PEH-1.pdf
