BETWEEN CRIMINALIZATION AND CARE: Policing and Social Service Outreach in San Francisco’s Homeless Encampments

Dr. Brown and Dr. Yarbrough of SF State’s School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement were panelist on a Storefront Lab discussion on October 11, 2016 titled “Towards a Compassionate City: A Conversation About Homeless Encampments”.  This panel examined how policing and social service outreach plays out on the streets of San Francisco on a day-to-day basis and what impact this has both on those experiencing homelessness and on the rest of the city. It provided a historical and national context for the roles and impacts of “quality of life” laws aimed at homelessness, similar to those initiatives on the November ballot and currently operating in San Francisco.  The panelists also discuss local propositions Prop Q – Prohibiting Tents on Public Sidewalks and Prop R Neighborhood Crime Unit. The panel is available to stream at https://soundcloud.com/storefrontlab/towards-a-compassionate-city-part-2-between-criminalization-and-care
