reading another report of something that happened that is unjust and also creating more distrust in our communities particularly around issues of race and the peaceful and nonviolent protesters that have put the matter on the national radar continue to make a powerful impression on the push for justice. i think we can all agree that change cannot happen without massive organized appeals for justice and as a former youth organizer , i continue to be committed to find ways to get weapons off of our city streets and there's nothing harder in my time on the board of supervisors than attending the funeral of a young person no matter how that

11:38 pm
san francisco we all know that in 2012 we passed ballot prop c but it only provides some minimal support to getting at at our enormous housing affordability crisis so i think another new option should be on the table and i want to work with the mayor's office of housing to explore and possibly the controller's office to explore what housing new options there might be for the housing. these could include general obligation bonds that's something i talked about a few years back before prop c was passed and the city budget reserve possibly and another option to meet our affordable housing crisis. i also am requesting the committee hearing for the

11:40 pm
