Facing Eviction
San Francisco, California - 2016

On October 9, 2015 Theresa and 40 community members protested at the San Francisco City Hall to demand the Mayor to pass stronger measures against evictions.

Theresa Flandrich, 60, received an Ellis Act Notice in April 2013. She was informed she had to leave her North Beach house on Lombard Street where she has lived for 30 years.

Her 27-year-old son left the apartment in November 2015 and is currently living with a friend in New York. This used to be his room.

Theresa looks through the window as she remembers her other five neighbors who have already been evicted.
