New Study Shows Market Rate Housing Displaces Latinos and Families in the Mission

A new study shows that more people are being pushed out of San Francisco's Mission District then are moving in. The study released today was conducted by the city of San Francisco on behalf of supervisor David Campos. It shows that families with children and Latino residents have been especially vulnerable to the soaring rents in the mission that are quickly pushing out middle income households. Campos announced the findings of the study from the steps of San Francisco city hall surrounded by housing activists and displaced residents of the mission district. Pacifica's Mike Kohn reports
