Yerba Buena Island Residents Face Imminent Eviction

In San Francisco, tenants of Yerba Buena Island and their supporters gathered at city hall to meet with their district supervisor, Jane Kim. Residents of Yerba Buena Island have received official eviction notices from the city, asking for them to relocate to Treasure Island, or to take a small cash sum of $5,500 to move elsewhere. Many residents oppose the move to Treasure Island, citing the island's recorded toxicity levels, and also say they will be unable to afford housing in San Francisco.
