E 12th St. City Council Vote – Rally


March 15, 2016 @ 5:00 pm – 10:15 pm
Oakland City Hall
Broadway & 14th St
Oakland, CA 94612

City Hall is failing too address Oakland’s housing crisis. While thousands of working class families of color see their rents rise or face eviction, our elected officials are selling off public lands to private developers.

After a hundred people testified last week in support of A People’s Proposal in a public hearing on the future of the E 12th parcel, City Council Members are attempting to undermine democracy and community by moving forward with an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement for the UrbanCore / EBALDC proposal for E 12th, a luxury tower that includes a token amount of segregated affordable housing.

Come out Tuesday March 15th at 5 pm to oppose the UrbanCore/EBALDC proposal, fight for A People’s Proposal, and let City Council know they must create real solutions to the housing crisis now.

We want to show up BIG and LOUD and are asking supporters to:

  • Pack the room for open forum at 5 pm to show City Council members right away that we do not accept luxury housing on public land. Be prepared to speak!
  • Sign up online to speak during the E 12th agenda item (item #3, sign up here) and urge City Council to vote NO on an ENA with UrbanCore/EBALDC and support A People’s Proposal
  • Be prepared to support the incredible organizers who have been working hard on this campaign for over a year now.

E 12th is not just about one parcel, its about the entire housing crisis in Oakland. We are inspired by the brilliance and perseverance of so many Oakland residents and everyone’s incredible support. Join us as we continue to bring the call for development without displacement and accountability from our elected officials directly to City Hall.

#SaveE12th & #publicland4publicgood!
