Finding Freedom in A Prison

Visitors were greeted by a Dragon Kite at Ai Weiwei exhibit on Alcatraz

Visitors were greeted by a Dragon Kite at Ai Weiwei exhibit on Alcatraz

“We’re going to prison!” Mike chuckled as he waited in line to receive a bagged lunch, a drawing pad, and an assortment of art materials. “I’ve never been on a boat,” he confessed, “but I know how to swim.”

As more folks entered through the doors of 290 Turk Street, some wiping the early morning from their eyes, the room filled with a buzz of anticipation and intrigue. Like Mike, many of the folks are participants of our Community Building Program (CBP). And like Mike, it was the first time in awhile that many of them would be leaving the Tenderloin, even for just a day. On this sunny April morning, they were looking forward to the experience of not having to hear the wailing sirens of emergency vehicles screaming up their streets or the luring whispers of someone hawking a pill. On this day, our CBP and Community Arts Program (CAP) collaborated to bring community members on a field trip to experience the @Large: Ai Weiwei On Alcatraz exhibit.

Artist James Scoville sketches on his way to Alcatraz

One of China’s most famous contemporary, prolific dissident artists, Ai Weiwei was considered a champion for the freedom of expression everywhere. Currently under house arrest in China due to acts of protest against his government, Ai Weiwei designed and then shipped his artwork in pieces to be reassembled on Alcatraz. The exhibit, seven installations created for the former penitentiary, addresses issues in a range of media, from sculpture and sound to postcards pre-addressed to political prisoners worldwide that visitors are invited to inscribe. His entire exhibit was a commentary on dissent through the merging  of art and social justice, a perfect field trip for the participants and staff members of CAP and CBP.

As the ferry approached Alcatraz, the salty air and trailing seagulls provided a setting of calmness in the midst of anticipation. Some folks pulled out their sketch pads to capture inspiration, while others related stories of childhood field trips.

Charles Blackwell and Marquaze Taybron guided by Alcatraz’s park ranger.

Once on Alcatraz, the group was greeted by a park ranger who relayed the history of the prison, in particular the unknown facts about people who spent time in deep holes just for protesting their own government – the U.S. government. The group climbed over a hill, past a water tower with the famous red graffiti scrawled on its walls that reads, “Peace and Freedom. Welcome. Home of the Free Indian Land,” a remnant of the Native American occupation of Alcatraz that lasted from November 1969 to June 1971. “That’s some people power,” someone commented.



Portrait of Nelson Mandela made entirely of Lego bricks.

Through the doors of a former barracks, the colorful face of a dragon greeted the entering visitors, the head of an extremely long traditional Chinese kite. It floated throughout the halls and led visitors to a separate room carpeted with portraits of past and present prisoners of conscience intricately made with hundreds of thousands of plastic Lego bricks.  “I used to build me a castle with them things when I was a kid.” said Mike.

As the exhibit continued in the main prison block on a steep hill, folks remained in awe of the experience. The history lessons, the examinations of social justice, the spectacle of art, the sharing of ideas, reminiscing with a tourist, eating a free lunch with friends – all this in a setting that no one would have thought would be possible. On prison grounds, surrounded by the ocean, for just this one sunny day in April, the folks from the TL strolled in freedom.  { by A.S.Manalo }

Communities in Crisis Call For Bold Response

This past February, Hospitality House began the process of developing Hospitality House’s Theory of Change (TOC), a one-page strategic framework to guide our organization’s work and decision-making for the future. The project was made possible through the guidance of CompassPoint Nonprofit Services and the sponsorship of the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development.

TOC Workgroup: (back row) Martina Roland, Cynthia Parker-Ohene, Windy Click, Lupe Poblano, Sarah Kent, Shannon Ellis, Jackie Jenks, Christian Castaing (front row) Allan S. Manalo, Jesse James Johnson, Kenya Hatcher, Ivan Vera, Alexandra Holy

This powerful and exciting document was developed over six months and involved a variety of stakeholders, including our participants, community members, staff, and the board of directors.  During the first meeting, a workgroup of staff, leadership, and board members were asked to create the Problem Statement. What is the current crisis we’re facing? The statement should excite and provoke.

After much brainstorming and discussion, a common theme surfaced. Powerful sentiments like “The system encourages or condones inequality,”  “We live in systems that perpetuate inequality,” “People struggling with poverty are not valued as human beings,” and “There’s a war against the poor!” all spoke to the widening economic inequality in San Francisco. Finally, after over a month of wordsmithing and input from our staff and participants, we had our problem statement:

Relentless economic inequality in San Francisco robs people of the opportunity to live a life of dignity and self-determination and threatens our shared humanity.

During the months that followed, the workgroup conducted several feedback sessions with staff, participants, shelter residents, and board members to develop the Anticipated Changes by asking the question, “If this is the problem, how will we know when it’s resolved?”

The Anticipated Changes need to be specific observable changes that indicate the problem is being solved. The statements should represent an envisioned future that are both larger than what Hospitality House can achieve as an individual organization AND something that Hospitality House will actively contribute to in selecting and designing the agency’s programs.

In the face of the City’s challenges, Hospitality House’s Anticipated Changes include preserving our Tenderloin, Sixth Street, and Mid-Market neighborhoods as places where people struggling with poverty are welcome and can thrive; assuring that our low-income residents have housing and meaningful employment; and building community power such that low-income residents actively participate in making decisions that affect their futures.

How would Hospitality House accomplish this? What are the Organizational Strategies? Grounded in our Core Values and using the same process to obtain feedback, the strategies were crafted to include: building increased capacity for advocacy, organizing, and neighborhood activation; cultivating peer leadership; holding decision-makers accountable;  leveraging power by building community alliances; continuing to use a harm reduction “low-threshold” approach; nurturing self-expression through the creative process;  and helping people raise their voices and speak truth to power.

As we work to implement this new TOC and develop our work plan for the coming year, Hospitality House is counting on our partners, donors, and allies to join with us in support of these ambitious goals. Our work together has never been more critical. We must take bold action during this time of dramatic and lasting change in San Francisco to assure that our vibrant low-income communities are not swallowed up in the process.

Economic Inequality Drives our Community to Take Action

By Jackie Jenks, Executive Director of Hospitality House

JJ20It’s been about five years since the “revitalization” plans for San Francisco’s Mid-Market area were set in motion. The proliferation of construction cranes has since reached beyond Market Street, erecting luxury towers and office buildings throughout the South of Market Area, China Basin, Mission Bay, and yes, even the Tenderloin.

With a growing economy inflated by the influx of a highly-paid workforce new to our city, San Francisco is aberrantly transforming into a metropolis of gentrified neighborhoods, overpriced restaurants, absurd monthly rents, and a social structure indifferent to its native culture of diversity, acceptance, and empathy. It is a city with an affordability crisis that continues to widen an already deep economic inequality gap – a chasm made palpable through the stories of daily Ellis Act evictions, the permanent loss of longtime rent-controlled housing, and the increased criminalization of people forced to contend with poverty and homelessness with no end in sight.

This is the story of so many San Francisco communities, and it especially resonates in the neighborhoods that are home to Hospitality House’s programs. Not only are people still struggling to find affordable places to live, many also suffer from the less tangible effects of displacement – loss of restaurants that serve a low-priced meal, displacement of stores and nonprofits that once served the community, and a realization that that the place they have always depended on for embracing acceptance may be a place they are no longer welcome.

To make matter worse, the peer staff that Hospitality House has proudly employed since our founding almost 50 years ago are among those being driven out of San Francisco by the same economic forces that are displacing so many others. In fact, statistically-speaking, no staff member at Hospitality House meets the income level now needed to afford a place in the city. Those few who remain do so through long-term home ownership or rent control, which is becoming scarcer by the day. The inability of staff to live in the city, and the cost of a commute from more affordable communities such as Stockton, Richmond, or Antioch, makes it increasingly difficult to attract and retain workers, a challenge we share with our nonprofit partners.

Given this new landscape, Hospitality House identified income inequality and its effects on our communities as the single most important issue to be tackled through our new Theory of Change, a one-page strategic framework that will guide the organization’s work and decision-making for the foreseeable future.  In this powerful document, the problem being addressed is boldly stated: “Relentless economic inequality in San Francisco robs people of the opportunity to live a life of dignity and self-determination and threatens our shared humanity.”

More specifics about our Theory of Change, including our newly-articulated core values and organizational strategies, are outlined in this issue, and the document is available in hard copy and on our website. As we move forward with its implementation, we are overwhelmed by the work ahead of us and at the same time energized by the people and organizations who join us in this struggle. Thank you for being on this journey with us. Fasten your seatbelts – this is already shaping up to be a wild ride.

Hospitality House Ballot Measure Endorsements

Every election year, we analyze local ballot measures that have a direct impact on our communities. Here are this year’s endorsements:

PROP. A – Affordable Housing Bond: YES! Authorizes the city to issue up to $310 million in bonds to fund affordable housing programs for vulnerable low and middle-income households.

PROP. C – Expenditure Lobbyist: NO! Requires nonprofit organizations – including small community-based groups – to register as expenditure lobbyists with the Ethics Commission, file burdensome monthly disclosures regarding their activities, and pay a $500 fee. This will stifle the voices of already-marginalized communities and will discourage them from civic engagement and participation in public policy debates.

PROP. E – Requirements for Public Meetings: NO! Amends the Sunshine Ordinance by requiring public meetings, testimony and comments be made accessible through electronic and pre-recorded means.  This caters to front groups who will destroy the public process. It will also waste taxpayer dollars, as the city controller estimates that this measure would cost the city an additional $750,000 per year for staffing and operating cost on top of a one-time cost to the city of a minimum of approximately $1.7 million.

PROP. F – Restrict Short-Term Residential Rentals: YES! Limits short-term rentals to 75 days per year (currently 90). Requires hosting platforms to stop listing a unit once that limit is reached. Requires proof of landlord authorization to use the unit for short-term rental. Requires the Planning Department to notify the unit’s owners and neighbors. Prohibits short-term rental of in-law units. Allows neighbors living within 100 feet of the unit to sue to enforce the City’s law and to sue hosting platforms for violations. Makes it a misdemeanor for a hosting platform to list a unit unlawfully.

PROP. I – Suspension of Market-Rate Development in the Mission District: YES! Pauses construction on market-rate housing development of 5 or more units in the Mission for 18 months while the City creates a neighborhood stabilization plan. The stabilization plan will propose measures to enhance and preserve affordable housing in the Mission, such that at least 50% of all new housing would be affordable to low, moderate and middle-income households, and available to Mission residents.

PROP. J – Legacy Business Historic Preservation Fund: YES!  Gives incentives to landlords to offer long-term extensions to legacy businesses, including nonprofits. Legacy business are those that have operated for 30+ years, or 20+ if at risk of displacement; those that have contributed to the history or identity of a neighborhood or community; and those with a commitment to maintaining the physical features or traditions of the business.

PROP. K – Surplus Public Lands: YES! Amends the current City ordinance that governs the disposition of surplus property. The current ordinance gives preferences to use of surplus property for affordable housing development and housing for homeless people. This measure expands the existing law to prioritize affordable housing when a public agency wishes to sell or lease unused public sites that are appropriate for housing, and setting minimum requirements for housing affordability.

Remember to VOTE on November 3, 2015 (7AM – 8PM)

In this city of power

This city of wealth and fame

The lonely, the destitute

Relegated to the shadows of shame

They stand in on the streets

Yet you do not see

You put on blinders to comfort your conscience

So you can live without a sense of guilt

After all they are only drunks, drug users and worse

Not at all human, any part of your world

Contributing nothing to the society you serve

Or so you think

These are people with ideas, ideals and emotions

People who did not ask for this to happen

No one says I want to be homeless

No one wants to deal with that pain

Who will speak for these masses without a voice?

In the marbled place of power

Who will give the invisible masses a face?

Who will give these people back their respect and dignity?

Who will wipe away their shame?

In this city of power

In this city of wealth and fame

Written and performed by staff member John Ellison during the Community Building Program’s Potluck & Poetry event.
