Oakland city elected officials say they love Oakland. They say it all the time. But do they have the heart to do the things that love requires? #PublicLand4PublicGood #HousingisaHumanRight #Homes4All #DevelopmentWithoutDisplacement #IfYouLove #Homes4EveryBody #ReclaimLove

More than 2700 Oakland residents are living on the streets, and more are being displaced every day. This is a do-or-die moment, and those of us who love Oakland, who love Oakland’s people, who love this land and view it as sacred….we cannot rest. We have to act. #ReclaimLove

On Valentine’s Day, we will deliver a “People’s Proposal for Public Land” to Oakland City Council members and ask them to adopt it, and not the pro-development, pro-corporation proposal being advanced by city staff. The People’s Proposal is the culmination of more than a year of conversation, deep listening to the people, and discussion among Oakland’s community-based orgaizations and city staff about how the land we own together should be stewarded. It calls for public land to be used for affordable housing, living-wage jobs for existing Oakland residents, and a healthy environment. #ReclaimLove

Mayor Libby Schaaf recently claimed that those of us who favor care for people over development are a “small fringe group.” Is that true? If not, we need you to come out and show your support.

We’ll have song, ritual, speakers, and prayer, and we’ll deliver our proposal to the city council offices.

ACCESSIBILITY: The plaza amphitheater and city hall are wheelchair accessible, and accessible restrooms are available inside city hall for all to use. There is concrete amphitheater seating for the programming, but you may want to bring a blanket to sit on as the concrete can be cold.
Only registered users may comment.
Pass a quick registration or authorization.
