Your friend should go to the Housing Rights Committee Office, 417 S. Van
Ness - just a few blocks from Noisebridge - and pick up some of the
literature there on tenants rights. I'm probably going to go there for
the Homes
Not Jails <http://www.homesnotjailssf.org> meeting tonight at 8pm (unless I
decide to stay at NB for the general meeting instead - it's always a tough
call). HNJ helps people find housing, btw, but that depends on your
friend's views on squatting or "house hacking."
