DSBE is committed to safeguarding and improving the conditions of East Palo Alto's homeless while striving to house and lift them up out of their condition.
Defending the fragility of East Palo Alto and San Mateo County's resources and service systems for our city's homeless ensues from this philanthropic stance.
The seriousness of this position is shown in how DSBE's Founder and CEO did NOT sue Project WEHope over his wrongful eviction from its and the city's only shelter despite a Stanford Law School lecturer outlining his lawsuit's arguments. He preferred not to take a penny from the shelter's operations for himself and instead lobby for the shelter to redress its safety hazards and building code violations to improve conditions for its residents.
Palo Alto's efforts to evict their homeless by making it illegal to sleep in vehicles and to use their Cubberley Center after 10:30 p.m. will push over their city and county borders and into our impoverished and burdened municipality. This threatens to overwelm what our CEO sacrificed to sustain and improve.
This further recalls Nevada's busing and dumping some of its psychiatric patients onto San Francisco for which that city's attorney Dennis Herrera is now considering a class action lawsuit against Nevada's conduct for their Attorney General Catherine Masto.
DSBE will be suggesting to San Mateo County's General Counsel that he in coordination with the City of East Palo Alto's City Attorney demonstrate to Palo Alto's City Attorney their willingness and preparedness to file suit against the City of Palo Alto to recoup the economic impact of their displacement of their homeless who would seek refuge in our city.
