3:00 pm
vulnerable populations and you're going to meet some of them today. of course you know the catholic charities service over thirty five thousand people across san francisco san mateo and marine counties some of the most vulnerable populations of all faiths and walks of life we commemorate that today but we're also commemorating black history today as the black experience in san francisco has has shades of darkness and shades of light. i want to tell you a very important very short story but very important story that is very emotional for me because it's personal when i asked dr. reverend james brown whether he could join us today. asked a little bit about me and i said reverend brown i tend to burnett elementary school in the country's point and he
3:01 pm
looks at me and he says. madam can you hear him say that he says madam do you know about. burnett elementary school do you know who is named after mind you i had been gone for three years and i went to elementary school there in the 70s so frankly i didn't and that's very important history and he proceeded to tell me that in 1840 to a missouri lawyer. by the name of peter burnett moved to germantown oregon which is now portland oregon we're actually i've been for the last 30 years. 1842 he moved there when he passed a law that said that any black people who live there after six months would be flawed and following that he wanted to also exterminate native americans and chinese. and
3:02 pm
not only that he then came down here in 1849 this man named burnett and he became the first elected governor of california that's the same burnett now he tried to pass the same law here in san francisco african african americans would be exterminated if he had his way. right or at least you thought but i didn't pass however although the law did not pass friends he was still distinguished in some of the community here in san francisco. so much so that he his name was put on the schools many schools around the state of california in mind you it wasn't one hundred and seventy years later because of the heroic efforts of doctor reverend. amos brown. that burnout elementary school and child and burnett child development center.
3:03 pm
were changed and in fact burnett child development center is now called instead of peter burnett it's now called leo harvard child development center. after an african-american another hero an african-american woman who was the first african-american principle in this area again. it was a one hundred and seventy years later due to the heroic efforts of our beloved doctor. amos brown that's a history. so what does that mean. that means that we need to keep that history alive. we cannot forget it. right. we cannot forget it. and we've got to pass it on to our children because otherwise it will be forgotten even i who came to school year didn't know that. so with that. we're gonna have a wonderful blessing
3:04 pm
today. i want to ask. bishop justice and i'm a mom no shekau and rabbi singer to please join me. and they're gonna do a blessing for us. oh yes ages are developing i thought on this suspicious occasion this. fits after the dramatic story the helmet told us to reflect and share. from paul christian in his letter to the corinthians if
3:05 pm
i speak in human angelic tongues but do not have love i am a resounding gone or clashing symbol if i have the gift of prophecy in comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge. if i have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love i am nothing if i give it away everything i owned if i had my body over so that they may boast but do not have love. thinking nothing love his patient love is kind it is not jealous. it is not pompous does not inflated it is not rude. is nuts. it does not seek its own interests. it is not quick tempered it does not brood over injury it does not rejoin silver wrongdoing every choices with truth it bears all things
3:06 pm
believes all things hopes all things endures all things love never fails so faith hope love remain but the greatest of these is love. that is our challenge that is something the world seems to fail in so often but we have hope. because we work together is god's creatures as brothers and sisters. to love to love to change what a great honor to join you on this day to celebrate the anniversary of the catholic charities bayview access point. thank
3:07 pm

3:08 pm
for the most vulnerable in that vein i joined with all of you in mourning the incalculable loss of defender jeff a dodgy who is one of our greatest partners in the religious work of providing quality defense to all of god's children what with endemic racism anti-semitism islamophobia and homophobia. not to mention hatred against homeless people. we need more of this. so standing side by side with your mom shekau bishop justice and together with reverend brown i offer these blessings from the jewish tradition at an irish more effort. may god bless and protect all of those at catholic charities in the historic bayview and it access point who care for our most vulnerable. may god's light shine on and

3:16 pm
support to families who are struggling with homelessness but it is so great to be here. to celebrate black history month in the city and county of san francisco and i know that the reason why i am able to be the first african-american woman to serve as mayor of san francisco because i to stand on the shoulders of so many incredible people many leaders from the baby hunters point. community a place that has a rich history a rich tradition of african-americans who have basically made their homes here whether it's working in the shipyard like my grandfather did in the work that focus did to build this city and the advocacy that went into building this city and making sure that our voices were heard. the folks in this community played a critical role to my success and so i would say thank you
3:17 pm
but with that success comes a incredible responsibility. it comes incredible responsibility to make sure that even though i serve as the first african-american woman in the second african-american. mayor. i have to make sure along with so many of you here today than i am not the last. we have work to do to change some of the things that we know existence san francisco yes we celebrate black history month and we celebrate some amazing accomplishments like the bayview opera house which is a landmark where incredible world renowned actors like danny glover got his start yes world renowned mr. glover famous and you are native son of this city? we celebrate those things. so we celebrate so many amazing accomplishments but we know that our population is less than 6 percent in san
3:18 pm
francisco. we also know that this access point serves almost 50 percent of the families that they've served. are african-american families who are struggling and need help and support. and thank goodness that we have an amazing community willing to wrap their arms around these families so that we can ensure their success. the work of the access points that serve families in san francisco have helped almost sixteen hundred families sixteen hundred families who were struggling with homelessness and they've been able to help almost 160 of those families transition into permanent housing. and let me tell you it's not easy and an expensive place like san francisco a big part of what i am doing is pushing to build more housing and this community help to make sure that a couple years back. remember that miss tatum when we got neighborhood
3:19 pm
preference legislation passed? so that 40 percent of all the new units developed in the baby hundreds point community go to the residents who live here first. as and that by it wasn't easy well we got to build more and we got to build more faster and we have to make sure that the next generation. they are prepared for the opportunities that are provided when i was growing up in housing in the western edition i never knew what was possible. i didn't know what was going on downtown in the financial district with all these incredible opportunities but because i had an opportunity to participate in programs and things that existed in the western addition because of leaders like reverend amos brown. i was able to be given an opportunity. a school in the baby hunters point named after gloria davis are you familiar with that school that was one of my mentors that will i didn't even know
3:20 pm
that woman and she decided she was gonna take me under her wing she was gonna help support me with my applications for school. my applications to get into colleges and scholarships she helped me with my essays and everything. and i didn't know who this woman was i i was introduced to her by a lady named laura lester we have to get back to some basics here in this community if we are going to ensure the success of the next generation those families who are being helped by the access point they need our support they need our encouragement. they need our love and our commitment to ensure that we get every last family into permanent supportive housing. again here's the good news and why we're here to celebrate because again we know prevention is the key and trying to provide people with the support they need to not end up homeless in the first place is so critical. but
3:21 pm
once they end up in that place then it's our responsibility through our coordinated entry system are access point to try and figure out a solution to get them on the path to permanent housing and in fact we set out a goal to in family homelessness in san francisco and to make sure that no family is unsheltered and we have an option for them when they ask and every single night we have at least 30 shelter beds for families that are empty and that is progress? there was a time two years ago where families were turned away and were left to sleep out in the cold in the streets in our city and that is not happening today that is progress and we know there is still more work to do. and we're going to get the job done. so i need your support the 300 million dollar affordable housing bond that's going on the ballot in november i need
3:22 pm
your support to build affordable housing as of right so that we stop with the people who are saying no you can't build in my community yes to housing in every community especially one hundred percent affordable housing we have got to get the job done. those families and the people struggling in this community are counting on us to make the hard decisions and do what's necessary by any means necessary to get the progress that we deserve in the baby hundreds point community. as so yes there is much to celebrate and i am excited and honored to be here with each and every one of you. but yes we still have work to do. so let's continue to work together to get the job done. and make our programs even more successful so that there is never a time in the city and county of san francisco where one family one child is
3:23 pm
suffering from homelessness we can do better and we will do better. thank you all so much for having me here today. an honorable dr. robert. amos brown. an good morning to moving spirit

3:45 pm
parents who worked in the polls starved noted that was an arms race space for so many parents who came here with home in the ideas and all those things or a part of what i remember i live 12 blocks from where i grew up. i remember when i had my first time my first home i was working out here and baby hundreds point for the model civvies program about my first home. you remember yes madam cities program from 1970 ones i decided to leave at the end of 19. 77 to pursue another life something else but i remember the in stores in the area and courageous people out here that i've worked with. when i call in a period of organic democracy grassroots
3:46 pm
democracy the allied with westbrook espanola jackson for surely joe's all those who worked at those women that i remember work out of here. for a moment or two of my boss and used to always being willing to stick their hand right in my face or anybody else in the space even committee alioto things to say we need this. we need that. those are the lessons that i've learned from here and the lessons around being real citizenship. we know the crisis of housing. it's nothing that we're going to in easily. we know the crisis warehousing is more than just a political. i mean this is a moral decision is a political decision as well we know from our experience when it happened in the western addition when i went to those meetings in waco in 1966 i was a student without those meetings at the western edition community organization as we listen to euro wabi. you're a worry yes
3:47 pm
you remember to all those men and women retired in young people who came and tried to comfort stand make a stand for justice programs came out of it. solutions came out of the incentives for tax. so those people who could invest could invest can vote they invest in low income housing a great deal of that housing in the western at issue is that low income housing that was came about as a part of the sand its citizens took in the western addition as they found themselves being on their being on the practice of being removed from there we know that they fall for that big fall for jobs. not only that. not only to be to have have a say in what happened in book form for chances with those of the lessons that we have to learn to that we have to fight relentlessly in terms
3:48 pm
of serving those who are most most vulnerable the house i live in right now within a few bucks somehow tangi just to be a place where we play basketball when we were young people were became a shelter. the church became a shelter in the center to became a shelter for homeless families at one point in time these are the realities are now going in san francisco. the reality is that every metropolitan everything that you can go to you go into that you live in when i moved onto the street i live on. there was one. there was a family who worked for the post office of the family down the street who worked to the post office working people. there was another family across the street no those people got their care they have children could not replicate a duplicate the opportunity to that they had had when they were capable they could not
3:49 pm
duplicated replicate the opportunity to get my parents have to buy that. home by then home have that home in the security of home of just three rooms for seven people three bedrooms once one was at some points for seven people. we have to talk about that. what is our relationship and this is the question they will have to have beyond just the housing issue but other issues said what is our relationship to what is just what is our relationship i was doing simply doing a film called the last black man in san francisco was just at sundance right here. and i did what i could i forgot about the fact that some of those houses right in the west in addition belong to japanese families before they weren't you turned in 1943. we don't know we have to not understand that history saw what happened as it happened in los angeles as
3:50 pm
it happened in other urban areas on this west coast that those who are native cabinet those houses while others is our relationship only temporary. when we needed we were not needed them with disposed of we're abandon it. is that at the situation would not just only african-americans we see is was noted that the 6 percent. the population of out of african-americans in the city's on the 60 percent. put all people but people who are poor people are disadvantaged those people with the way the asian apply their dispensable so there's a kind of distance ability that that happens as a kind of way in which we had to figure out how do we live? and make this place live for all of us not beyond just the market permission when i worked in the mission depression with this vibrant community of men and women and language the common language said bonded together whether you from el salvador
3:51 pm
central america where are you from mexico. was a key with the strength to that and i remember all those book coming out there in seeing that being part of the mission hiring are being part of the missing cultural sit in all those things all those team. which embody embody people in who they are? their own identity their own history and their own possibilities of a future as well. you have to talk about that. that's good. larger context i wondered why i'm here. i'm here for the worked as she's done in leading this is leaving appealing the threat if we all know that we had no way you have to stand by her. if we had to command the civil war as well. and for all of us was really the man she does more than me. we do more you know what i say. so that's another
