Gentrification is HERE!  Organizations and neighbors in Oakland are fighting to stop it. Let’s join forces to make an even bigger impact.

Our vision is for self-determined communities where residents will thrive and make collective decisions about the resources in their neighborhoods.  We want to start this journey by building a citywide movement against gentrification and displacement.

� Learn what people are doing to fight gentrification
� Hear and share what is working and what is not.
� Plug in with other people who want to get involved in the fight
� Learn about opportunities for collaboration and citywide efforts.
� Find out about the “dirty dozen” — the top evictors in our city

Food, childcare and Spanish translation provided.

RSVP and more info HERE.

Organizers of the event, which includes different Bay Area social justice organizations, community groups and coalitions, seek to build a city-wide movement against gentrification and displacement. Our community meeting will focus on pulling together all of the folks that we know of that are doing good work to fight gentrification to learn about what folks are doing, share what’s working, plug in folks that want to get involved in the fight, and identify opportunities for collaboration and city-wide efforts.
