San Francisco voters Tuesday will decide whether tenants in the city facing eviction will be entitled to a city-funded attorney.

Proposition F provides for city-funded legal representation for tenants in eviction lawsuits. Any resident of the city battling an eviction would get an attorney paid for by the city if Prop F passes.

The proposition wouldn't apply to evictions brought by landlords who live in the same unit as the tenant.

The proposition is endorsed by the San Francisco chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the SF Tenants Union, the Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, Causa Justa: Just Cause, Coalition on Homelessness, Affordable Housing Alliance and other groups.
