Oakland Housing Justice

For more than a decade, Public Advocates has worked in partnership with community groups in Oakland to win investment and development that meets the needs of the city’s low-income residents and workers. The goal is to create more homes that families can afford and more protections for tenants facing rising rents.

Oakland is experiencing a wave of development and city planning aimed at drawing high-tech businesses and high-earning residents. At the same time, regional and state policies are further encouraging development in Oakland’s many transit-connected neighborhoods.  We must remain vigilant and active if we want to preserve Oakland as a vibrant, multi-ethnic community open to people from all rungs of the economic ladder.

Public Advocates has played a key role in a number of campaigns working to make sure local residents benefit from development in Oakland.
