Oakland city council voted to upzone Rockridge and expand housing opportunity citywide!

Come celebrate with us at 6pm Wednesday, October 25th at McNally's Irish Pub in Rockridge, 5352 College Ave. Hope to see you there!

This is a big occasion. For years now we've been advocating to legalize missing middle housing, departing from the single-family mandate, in the East Bay - and on Tuesday, Oakland did it. Duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes are now buildable, as of right, in Oakland's zoning code. Plus, the city mad...

The murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd have catalyzed a national uprising in response to continued police violence and lawlessness that has shown implacable resistance to reform. It was recently reported that a Louisville police unit called Place-Based Investigations “deliberately misled narcotics detectives to target a home on Elliott Avenue, leading the cops to believe they were targeting ‘Louisville’s largest violent crime and drug rings.’” The unit appears to have been tasked with arresting and intimidating Breonna and her neighbors into leaving their homes in order to make way for a lucrative new development being pushed by the city’s mayor....

East Bay for Everyone recognizes that there’s nothing new about the murder and abuse of Black people, Indigenous people, people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ+ folks, and the poor by police departments in the United States. The only thing that has changed is that it’s on camera now. The murders of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, Atatiana Jefferson by Dallas police, Breona Taylor by Louisville Metro police, and Ahmaud Arbery by a former policeman and an accomplice, have been the spark to the resistance we’ve seen across the country.
