Medical Professionals Stage Die-in Outside SF Mayor’s Home Demanding Hotels for the Unhoused

HeadlineMay 01, 2020

In California, medical students and doctors with the UC San Francisco Do No Harm Coalition staged a die-in outside of the home of San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Wednesday to protest her refusal to swiftly move unhoused people into hotel rooms. The die-in lasted 30 minutes to symbolize 30,000 vacant hotel rooms in the city that could be used to house the homeless during the pandemic. The protesters also held a moment of silence for three unhoused people in San Francisco who have died of COVID-19.
