Defend Afrika Town - by WeCopwatch
While the city of Oakland flaunts its newly developed downtown area, this “revitalization project” has come with the cost of the residents of Oakland. Gentrification, along with a brutal police force, has displaced black and brown residents as a means to “clean up” the neighborhood. AfrikaTown is a community effort to provide a different alternative, one that supports and lifts the existing community rather than displace it.
