Oakland City Funding for Eviction Defense Support Expiring on June 30, 2017
The situation is indeed dire. All funding from the City of Oakland for eviction defense work will end as of June 30, 2017, given the continuing ambiguity about CDBG funding that we’ve been told constrains the city’s ability to execute new contracts. In other words, the City of Oakland currently is not committed to fund eviction defense work once the 2016/2017 contracts expire....

Tell Oakland's City Council: Defund OPD, Invest in Community
The process of allocating Oakland’s 2.6 billion dollar budget for 2017-2019 has begun. We believe that the scandal-ridden and dysfunctional Oakland Police Department consumes far too many of our city's resources. It’s time to audit police spending and performance, and redirect wasted funds to community-building, constructive strategies for making Oakland a safer and better place to live....
