The continual displacement of our neighborhoods by corporate transportation agencies and government.

A Youth & Family Poverty Scholars We-Search Investigation from Deecolonize Academy/POOR Magazine

Press Conference & Demand to the City for Community Reparations

Background:
While AC transit and the City of Oakland Take HUGE payments from Corporate Transportation Agencies to Gentrify Oakland residents out of Oakland. At this press conference poor, unhoused and working class Youth and families residents of East Oakland will release their extensive “WeSearch” (Poor people-led research coined by POOR Magazine) on the funding sources, cover-up and gentriFUkation plans of this new Transportation Gentrification hitting Deep East Oakland.

NOTE:
In addition to covering up the backroom deals made with the City – the City denied access to documents requested by youth skolaz at Deecolonize Academy who filed over 14 Freedom of Information Act Requests from the city.

At this press conference we will be making a formal demand to the City and County of Oakland and AC transit to pay into a Community Reparations Fund to keep Oakland residents in Oakland while they try to build transportation lines about us without us.
