Welcome to Senior & Disability Action!

We mobilize and educate seniors and people with disabilities to fight for individual rights and social justice. Through individual support and collective action, we work together to create a city and world in which seniors and people with disabilities can live well and safely. See our video below.

Positions for November 2014 Ballot
Prop G: Anti-Speculation Measure — SUPPORT!
Stop evictions of seniors and people with disabilities by reducing the incentive for speculators to flip multi-unit buildings.

This is a basic question of economic justice for our community, in one of the most expensive cities in the country.

This is about protecting cars, building more parking, focusing less on fines and enforcement, etc. Bad for seniors and people with disabilities who depend on public transit.
