Hot off the Press! SFHAC in the Media

When the housing market heats up, the SF Housing Action Coalition’s phone starts ringing.  As a small, yet influential housing advocacy group, we are asked to weigh in on housing in San Francisco. To capture these references, we’ve added a new page to our site called SFHAC in the Media,” which gives our followers an easy way to stay updated with our work since January 2014.
We’ve highlighted a few of our proud pieces below.
