US: San Francisco Launches Guaranteed Income Initiative for Trans Citizens

What the 49ers are saying after beating the Chargers

  What the 49ers are saying after beating the Chargers The 49ers started the second half of their season strong Sunday night with a 22-16 comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers. They are now 5-4, just one game behind the Seahawks for the NFC West lead. After allowing a quick score to open the game, the 49ers’ defense locked up Justin Herbert and the Chargers’ offense, allowing only 57 yards (and zero points) in the second half. Los Angeles entered the red zone twice in the first half after its initial strike, but walked away both times with only a field goal. The Niners, despite trailing throughout, stuck to their game plan and racked up 41 rushing attempts.

San Francisco is launching the first guaranteed income initiative focused on the transgender community. The pilot program is designed to combat the chronic poverty and homelessness experienced by some of its most vulnerable trans residents.

The Guaranteed Income for Trans People (GIFT) will provide 55 applicants with $1,200 a month between January 2023 to June 2024. Applicants must be at least 18, identify as trans, nonbinary, gender-nonconforming or intersex, earn less than $600 a month, and must reside within San Francisco County and City.

Detroit Tigers protect five prospects from Rule 5 draft, trim 40-man roster to create space

  Detroit Tigers protect five prospects from Rule 5 draft, trim 40-man roster to create space The Detroit Tigers added 3 hitting prospects and 2 pitchers to their 40-man roster ahead of next month's Rule 5 draft, and DFA'd Kyle Funkhouser.Olson is the Tigers' No. 9 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, followed by Perez at No. 14, Meadows at No. 16 and Lipcius at No. 22.

And according to the program’s website, GIFT is prioritizing applicants who are BIPOC, “experiencing homelessness, living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, youth and elders, monolingual Spanish-speakers” as well as sex workers, undocumented, ​and formerly incarcerated peoples. In addition to income, recipients will receive support such as gender affirming care, financial coaching and mental health care.

The program is designed by trans organizations Lyon-Martin Community Health Services and The Transgender District. The SF Mayor’s Office, through various government agencies, will provide backing and support.

“We know that our trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination, so this program will target support to lift individuals in this community up,” SF Mayor London Breed said in a statement to ABC7 News. “We will keep building on programs like this to provide those in the greatest need with the financial resources and services to help them thrive.”

Detroit Tigers tender contracts to six arbitration-eligible players for 2023 season

  Detroit Tigers tender contracts to six arbitration-eligible players for 2023 season The Detroit Tigers started the offseason with 13 arbitration-eligible players. New boss Scott Harris tendered contracts to six of them.Third baseman Jeimer Candelario, infielder Harold Castro and utility player Willi Castro were non-tendered and officially became free agents at Friday's 8 p.m. tender deadline. Earlier this offseason, the Tigers cut ties with four arbitration-eligible players: right-hander Drew Hutchison, outfielder Victor Reyes, righty reliever Miguel Díaz and righty reliever Kyle Funkhouser.

SF’s Office of Transgender Initiatives illustrated the need for such a program. “The US Transgender Survey, which is the only large-scale study of trans people in the United States, in 2015 found that 33% of trans people in California were living in poverty,” said Executive Director Pau Crego. This stands in comparison to the approximate 13% poverty rate of the general population at the time.

“We hope that our guaranteed income program will be the beginning of a reparative process to change the inequities experienced by our communities, help them survive in a world that is constantly debating their right to exist, and empower them to engage in healthcare services in a meaningful and life-changing way,” said JM Jaffe, executive director of Lyon-Martin Community Health Services.

GIFT comes nearly six months after Breed announced a plan to end trans homelessness by 2027, making San Francisco the first US city to commit to such a goal. But that announcement was also made days after Breed declined to march in Pride, siding with police officers barred from attendance in uniform.

Applications for trans people living in San Francisco are open from November 15 to December 15 here.
