Host of KPFA Radio's "UpFront", Brian Edwards-Tiekert, interviews People Power Media co-founder Joseph Smooke in Joseph's capacity as Westside Program Director of Housing Rights Committee San Francisco. The interview is about the proposed California State Senate bill SB 827 that would displace existing residents around transportation hubs by overriding local zoning and development controls. Brian first interviews California State Senator Scott Wiener about his bill, then at 14 minutes and 40 seconds into this segment, Brian turns to Joseph to share the tenant and community perspectives.
