OneFam and Bikes 4 Life have a rich history, but they are facing eviction unless we unite to defend it.
OneFam, located in West Oakland, is a community-based organization that utilizes a series of for-profit social enterprise businesses to support its non-profit mission. OneFam started years ago with Bikes 4 Life. It has since grown to include the other units on the property: the 7th Street Rev Cafe, and other land subleased for gardening projects. The goals of OneFam are as follows:
— Inspire community members to take part in politics by building a social justice movement with a diverse mix of artists and activists
— Raise the consciousness of young people and turn them into local leaders by creating a space for education and awareness about the issues of their community.
OneFam has roots in the Oscar Grant movement. Many meetings happened in OneFam spaces. OneFam is an amazing community organization. Unfortunately it has a troubled history with its property owners.
Help save 7th Street Culture! Come out for the BBQ block party!
