Canvass for Yes on Prop 10!
1218 Magnolia St, Oakland, CA 94607 Gentrification, displacement and sky-rocketing rents. We've all been talking about it and now its time to DO SOMETHING about it. Proposition 10 is a historic opportunity to take on the biggest barrier to winning for real housing justice with the repeal of the Republican backed 1995 bill the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act. Backed by corporate landlords and real estate billionaires, the opposition to Prop 10 is raising BIG money to fight us - but WE ARE IN THE MAJORITY and with all of your help we can win! Join us for a door knocking training and mass canvassing to pass Prop 10 and build the tenant movement for rent control!!! Join us for canvasses and phone banks across Oakland: https://www.prop10fortenants.com/oakland If you'd like to volunteer for any of the events including this one, please contact Eduardo Colon by e-mail at [masked] or call him at (619)[masked]

What we're about

Mission: We are a resource network for people of color interested in building intentional, healthy, and affordable housing communities in the Bay Area and beyond.

Vision: We are committed to creating an entire ecosystem of POC-centered communities that are ecologically, emotionally, spiritually and culturally regenerative.

The People of Color Sustainable Housing Network (POCSHN) is a resource network for people of color interested in building intentional, healthy, and affordable housing communities in the Bay Area and beyond. Since starting in February 2015, it has grown to become an intergenerational network with quarterly potlucks and monthly meetings with the organizing collective, both of which are open to everyone. The network was established in response to extreme increases in housing costs, rapid gentrification, and the lack of socio-economic diversity among the intentional community movement across the United States. The network connects people of color interested in renting-to-own, buying, or investing in alternative housing models, including accessory dwelling units, housing coops, cohousing, land trusts, and ecovillages.

The POC Sustainable Housing Network has four primary outcomes:

1. To increase awareness of sustainable housing options for POC

2. To increase POC access to financial, educational, and human resources needed to create and sustain POC­-centered communities

3. To increase the number of culturally and economically diverse sustainable housing options available to POC through the acquisition of land and properties

4. To serve as a centralized hub for POC land and housing struggles in order to share best practices, resources, and solutions
