About the exhibit
Starting in 1987 when a group of tenants banded together to fight against a pending eviction due to redevelopment of the Orangeland market building, CTA has become a leader in San Francisco’s housing advocacy community with its roots firmly established in fighting unjust evictions and advocating for those in need. This exhibit celebrates the 30th anniversary of CTA’s members, actions, and role in the community through stories, film, photos, and ephemera of its 1500 members.

Evictions and the threat of displacement put a great burden and stress on vulnerable seniors and families. Throughout its 30 years, CTA has played a key role in organizing efforts, galvanizing and uniting tenants to fight evictions, and keeping hope alive. Many tenants join CTA after they seek assistance and support in fighting their own evictions. Members recognize that many others face displacement and evictions and they collectively work to ensure the future of affordable housing in San Francisco. As the current CTA president once said, “We aren’t home, until we all are home.”

住客會成立於1987年,起源於華埠橙地逼遷事件,當時橙地住客組織起來奮力對抗,並因此促成住客會的誕生。社區住客聯會是三藩市爭取房屋權益的先鋒,理念是反抗不公義逼遷及為有需要的人發聲。此展覽透過圖片和故事細說住客會30年來在社區積極的角色和行動。

逼遷的威脅為弱勢社群帶來沉重的負擔和壓力。30年來,社區住客聯會在組織、教育和團結住客去對抗逼遷上扮演一個關鍵的角色。很多住客自身面對逼遷時得到住客會的支持和援助,及後都紛紛加入住客會,甚至成為社區領袖。住客會體會到很多三藩市住客正面臨流離失所及逼遷,因此住客會努力去保護社區的福祉,就如梁榮浩主席說:「我們不怕風雨、不求回報,只求人人安居樂業。」
