Beloved Oakland’s Call To Action

Oakland is the epicenter of the nation’s housing and racial injustice crisis with the decline of 26% of African Americans during this time of unprecedented economic growth and prosperity.  Oakland families making the median household wage of $36,000 would have to pay 100% of their income towards the new market rate rents of $3,000 a month!  The failure to prevent displacement has resulted in the 39% increase in the homeless population in just two years.  The new homeless are people who can’t afford housing costs.  They are predominately African American, the formerly incarcerated, single headed households with children, and older adults.  Solutions are available to ensure that Oakland’s people are guaranteed basic human rights to housing and inclusion in the new economy.

Today a band of community, faith, political, and tech leaders have joined forces to implement Dr. King’s vision of the Beloved Community in Oakland, California.
