with the airbnb i have paying customers and i request that you continue the program of home-sharing that you approved of, so that everyone can benefit. thank you. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> next speaker, please. >> my name is frances collins. i sang for the veterans for peace and i'm involved in veterans issues. i also have been an activist in the housing rights. i am here as a representative of the san francisco black and brown organization alliance, and a concerned citizen of san francisco. our city is in a state of emergency with the recent violent deaths of 13 young men of color and 32-year-old mother of three, who was shot and
killed while getting her mail from her mailbox. it is for these reasons that i strongly recommend the task force introduced by supervisor malia cohen, district 10, where the majority of the shootings. >> sir, you cannot comment on the task force at this time, i'm sorry. >> that this task force be filled with members of the community. >> sir, i'm sorry, you can't comment on the task force. i'm sorry. >> okay. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, madame president and board of supervisors. my name is pastor from the western edition -- i'm just here's a member of the san francisco black and brown organization alliance. we're aligning our communities. we have young men, young women that are dieing in the streets
from bayview-hunters point to the western edition, tenderloin , we have got the western edition. it's touched everybody. lake view omi is completely wiped out of black people, period. everybody is ended up in the tenderloin and we're getting pushed out of tenderloin. we sit right next door to the marina district. right over the hill. so we just thank you for hearing us. as an organization, we're pulling together, it's not about individualizing but it's about all of us coming together, just like we have all of the supervisors together. we're all coming together as organizations and as people of color to stand for
righteousness and injustice. but we need help. we need the city and county of san francisco to include the community. to finally include the community. the western edition was the first redevelopment act of wiping out the african-american community and we're still as a community not represented. so finally if we can band together against violence, we know all of this stuff came from economics and redevelopment wiped it out. so if we could just come together somehow and make this organization/alliance with our city and county, that is what we want to do. thank you. thank you, next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is sue vaughn, i'm the chair of the sf group of the sierra club, but i'm here speaking on my own. supervisors, a pandora's box of problem for muni and other
public transit agency and statewide could be opened unless we all act fast. a republican assemblyman from southern california has introduced ab 61 to amend the state vehicle code 2250.5 which prohibits all, but common carriers, muni and other public transportation agencies, buss from operating in public bus stops. this bill quite simply is an attempt to circumvent environmental review. and the tech companies to mitigate their impacts. apple's 4th quarter profits were greater -- and other tech companies with similarly wealthy. and environmentally review would assess the impacts of these buss from everything ranging from safety pedestrian and bicycle safety and infrastructure impacts to
evictions and hyperinflation of housing prices. these companies can afford to mitigate for their impacts. why is a republican assemblyman from southern california introducing legislation to privatize our bus stops. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker, please >> hello everyone, i'm paulette brown and i would like to use the overhead. i'm here kernighan my son and i'm not here to bash anyone. i'm an advocate and i'm out there all the time trying to bring just for my child and other children. we ran an organization [speaker not understood] and i just wanted to say about all the unsolved murders, including my son's case.
my son's case is still is closed case -- it's not closed, but it's not solved and i'm concerned about that as a mother. it's been eight years since my son was murdered. you know, i am taking responsibility as a parent, you know? as i would say if my son hadn't been out there causing problems, there is no way i would have watched my son die. there is no way i would have watched my son go identity and shoot someone else. sometimes the parents got to take responsibility and tell on their children, if they are doing something wrong. in this snitch culture that is going on it needs to stop and we need to open our mouth, because our silence is killing our children and we need to do something about that. i carry my pictures with me and these are all unsolved murders of young men that have been going on for years and years, and all of these are unsolved,
including my son's. i also have a picture -- i tell people that they don't want to stand over their son's casket, this is all i have to remember my son. this is all i have to remember my son. and the next thing that keeps me fighting is my son laying on the gurney, dead, 30 rounds of bullets left in my son. this is for me to remember the rest of my life and i'm willing to get out there and stand and help anybody. that is what we need to do. thank you. >> thank you, miss brown. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, president london breed and board of supervisors, i just want to say thank you supervisor breed and other board members who have been on the front line of this issue and including our chief
greg suhr, who has been with us since the beginning of these homicides that have taken place. my name is madie scott and i'm the executive director for human nation and president for the brady campaign, san francisco chapter and chapter leader. i'm very angry, very angry to the response to the homicides that have plagued our whole city. it has affected everybody here in san francisco. as a mother who lost a son 17 years ago, it just brings back memoris for me and my family and for the community and for 13 young men of color, where the majority of these deaths happened in district 10 and in the filmore district. we should by outraged. we should be outraged and angry that this has occurred in our city of hearts. a city that represents hearts while all of our hearts are broken here in the city because of this recent
rash of homicides and violence. we can do better. we elected you all to support us on a journey to have a safer and better san francisco. the mayor's response to this is an atrocity. he has not reached out to anyone or said anything about these homicides or even said anything in sympathy towards the families. we will take this to our attorney general harris if we have to and we're you encouraging everybody to write a letter to here. we're going to take it all the way to the capitol and if necessary to the president. so we hope that the board hears us and takes action on this item. >> thank you, miss scott, next speaker, please.

three years and left. i have seen a lot of people leave. in all of that time i'm only corresponding with one person, overhead, please. rodney fong. he was the butcher at the bayside village market and i would say it's two, three years and he would laugh and said two years and i built the clientele and they were gone, two years. he was terribly frustrated. we're not building rental-rate [speaker not understood] it's just not a healthy two, three years these people have to go, because they are paying a huge amount of rent, and they can find cheaper digs somewhere else, farther away. we don't create a healthy community. thank you. >> thank you very much.
next speaker please. >> good afternoon supervisors. i'm jackie stanford. i am an educator, and with expertise in race and community race in school and society. i just would like to support my friends and family in the community as we raise our voice about the trauma in our community and to remind us of the words of simon who said in mississippi, schoolchildren are sitting in jail and now people are dying in the streets, and she asks the question, why can't you see it? why can't you feel it? i don't know. i don't know. >> thank you very much. are there any other members of the

youth commission's primary concern. props to supervisor david campos, and other groups for advancing that major expansion of our public muni system. this resolution supports decriminalization of youth fare -evasion. the law allowed for other infractions to be handled administratively and not criminally. so the decriminalization of youth fare-evasion, the option to replace fines for community service. but youth were exempted from this change, and this resolution urges the state government to decriminalize these infractions. following the amazing grassroots campaign to bring free muni to san francisco, the
current law is completely out of step with our valued and this resolution urges us to be consistent. it doesn't mean that youth who break the rule and are ineligible, it would be handled administrative like a parking ticket and not in the justice system. i urge strong support for this policy. thank you. >> not seeing any other names on the roster, can we take this item same house, same call? without objection, this resolution is adopted >> madame clerk, can you please read the in memoriam. >> yes, today's meeting would be adjourned in meming of the following individuals on behalf of supervisor campos for the late mr. meay, mr. alfonso and mr. maraiso and on behalf of supervisor wiener and supervisor campos for the late
