The Plaza 16 Coalition is teaming up with Our Mission No Eviction on the first anniversary of their momentous march down 24th Street, to carry the loud-and-clear message of “affordable housing, not displacement” across the neighborhood. The march will finish at 16th and Mission Plaza where we’ll have a rally against “The Monster in the Mission” and celebrate our community and people power with live music, art, and food.
The Plaza 16 Coalition is a rapidly growing coalition of neighbors, and some 60 small businesses and community organizations opposing Maximus Real Estate Partners’ 10-story, 351-unit monster of luxury apartments proposed for 16th and Mission Streets. This development will greatly accelerate gentrification in the neighborhood and have a devastating impact of displacement of communities of color, low income and working class residents, and mom and pop businesses. The Mission District is our home and we will not tolerate the loss of more our community and culture. No Monster (towers of luxury housing) in the Mission!
