East Bay Forward is a network of citizens fighting for the future of housing, transit, tenant rights, and long-term planning in the East Bay. We believe in more housing, more renter protections, better public transit, and better infrastructure.

We are currently made up of members from Alameda, Berkeley and Oakland. As more members sign up, we can begin advocacy in other cities.

What's going on:

We currently cover Alameda, Oakland, and Berkeley but we're working to build a base of pro-housing advocates who believe that density is good, displacement needs to be stopped, housing is a home, and that we need more of it - especially in the long run. As more people join from each city, we can expand our work. Read our full platform.
