BACKGROUND
Aunti Frances is a beloved Black disabled activist, elder, Black Panther and community leader who has lived in North Oakland/South Berkeley her entire life. She now faces a no-fault eviction by a notorious loophole in Oakland renter protections. As the founder and force behind the Self-help Hunger Program, a program started in 2010 to support and and feed people in Triangle Park/Driver Plaza in North Oakland, Aunti Frances is an integral leader in the food justice movement in Oakland. The impact of her displacement will not only be felt as a huge loss for her block and her neighborhood, but also for the larger movement that is working to imagine and plant seeds for sustainable and just communities in Oakland.

Our mission is to convince Aunti Frances’ landlords, Natalia Morphy and Morphy’s parents, to end the eviction proceedings and instead support Aunti Frances in staying in her community. We need as much community support as possible to insist that the Morphys drop this eviction. We aren’t going anywhere, because you can’t evict community power!
