as collaborating with outside local organizations, including
the Mission Economic Development Association (MEDA) and
the San Francisco Labor Council, to explore the feasibility
of tenant ownership of the Redstone Building.
gentrification continues in the Mission District of
San Francisco, the number of places that support its
historic working class and immigrant culture are dwindling.
If the RTA can buy this building in a collective manner
as a community resource, diversity can be in at least
one place preserved.
