On March 18th, come to the Oakland City Council Planning Commission hearing to speak out against gentrification in Oakland and for affordable housing! Save the E. 12th St. parcel for the people!

Background: In the midst of a housing affordability crisis in Oakland, the City is proposing to sell publicly owned land to create a 24 story, 300 unit luxury high-rise apartment tower right by Lake Merritt, where the median rent will be 3k per month. The development will have no affordable units and no real community benefits. The property is on E 12th St. and 1st Ave, right by the new pedestrian bridge at the end of Lake Merritt.

Long-time residents are being pushed out of Oakland every day because of skyrocketing housing costs. The city’s number one priority right now should be figuring out how to make it possible for working families to stay in Oakland - not developing luxury high rises for the rich that are just going to raise rents and exacerbate displacement.
