March For Housing Now – Our City, not Scarcity! @ Mosswood Park
Nov 23 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Who deserves to have a home in Oakland, Berkeley, or Richmond? Who makes these decisions? In the midst of the housing crisis, speculators are buying up houses, apartments and PUBLIC LAND. In Oakland, there are 4 VACANT units for every, individual unhoused person, 25% of whom are children. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We cannot settle for ‘trickle-down’ solutions that overproduce “luxury” market-rate housing and structurally build in vacancies and homelessness. We must not stand by while corporate landlords and greedy developers buy up our cities and force black and brown families … Continued
