On the Heels of a Housing Justice Week of Action kicked off by Homeless Mothers Reclaiming a Vacant Corporate Owned Property in West Oakland, Bay Area Renters are Infuriated to See Hundreds of Luxury Homes Built While Thousands Remain Homeless

OAKLAND: Hundreds are set to join the “March for Housing Now: Our City, Not Scarcity” to one of the many new luxury vacant buildings in Oakland to denounce the overproduction of luxury units over housing affordable to working families, to demand vacant units be turned over to house families and to push for a strong public lands policy. The march is the culminating end to a week of action, kicked off with Moms 4 Housing, a collective of homeless and marginally housed mothers, reclaiming a vacant, corporate owned property on Monday.

What: Hundreds Will March to Demand Oakland Elected Officials House Families NOW!

When: Saturday, November 23rd, 12:00PM - 3:00PM

Where: Starting at Mosswood Park, 3612 Webster St, Oakland, CA 94609

Who: Homeless families and people on the verge of eviction, low-income community residents and workers. Members of: Moms 4 Housing, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), Alameda Labor Council, Sunrise Movement Bay Area, East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO), East Bay Democratic Socialists of America, Strike Debt Bay Area, Oakland Tenants Union, IFPTE Local 21, SEIU Local 1021, and Youth Vs. Apocalypse

In Oakland, there are 4 vacant units for every 1 homeless person. As the homeless crisis continues to grow and rents continue to increase, buildings are being bought and sold every day by private equity firms, and the majority of buildings in the construction pipeline are market rate or luxury while the majority need is for deeply affordable housing.

The Housing March will bring awareness to the actions of big banks, real estate developers and investors in fueling and benefiting from the severe housing crisis in Oakland and urge elected leaders to pass a luxury vacancy tax be imposed on luxury vacant units in Oakland, to pass a strong public lands policy and to immediately use vacant units for housing. original image (2021x2048) For more event information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1773601172...
