This chapter describes how the Mission District of San Francisco became embroiled in a battle over the occupation and usage of its space at the start of the twenty-first century. Years of regional economic prosperity attracted a flood of new migration and settlement unlike any seen before. Largely white, young, and professional, these newest Mission residents herald a new force on the landscape. Drawn to the district by the affordability of the city's largest barrio, these twenty-first-century migrants brought with them their own visions of what a community is and should look like. On the surface, the present struggle is about housing. However, the Latino community of San Francisco today is struggling for survival.
