SAN FRANCISCO — A prominent San Francisco leader in the African American community is calling for more action to curb violent behavior by homeless people after a beloved nonprofit director was severely beaten by two allegedly homeless men, Friday.

James Spingola, director of the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center in the city’s historic Black Fillmore neighborhood, was beaten with a wooden plank after he asked two men to move away from the organization’s front doorstep, said Rev. Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco NAACP and pastor at Third Baptist Church.
