SPEAK OUT IN SUPPORT OF A PEOPLE'S PROPOSAL FOR E. 12TH ST. -- 100% AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON PUBLIC LAND!

Your support for A People's Proposal is more critical than ever! We need to show the depth of community support for 100% affordable housing on public land. Please join us on Monday 2/29:
4:00 Community gathering on steps of Oakland City Hall
4:30 Special CED Committee Meeting on E 12th Proposals
Please sign up here to speak: bit.ly/1KRtMln. It is very important that speakers sign up beforehand because there is no open forum and only this agenda item. We are agenda item number 1. (Remember to print out your confirmation page and bring it with you.)
The fight for the E 12th A People's Proposal is not just about one piece of public land. We need to lift up the voices of the people who are being impacted by our housing crisis - people of color and working class communities that make Oakland so diverse and beautiful - and push back against development-as-usual. Join us to demand real solutions to the housing crisis and public land for public good, not luxury towers and segregated housing.
You can always help by keeping the public pressure up by calling or emailing Council Members, or contacting them on Twitter or Facebook!
