Your neighbors, friends, family

We are regular citizens who love the East Bay and the Bay Area. We believe that not only should people who live here be able to stay, but that we should make room for newcomers. We believe that though redlining may no longer be legal, pulling up the ladder is no different.

Let's return to the Bay Area values of community and embracing new ideas and new people.

We're tired of high rents. We're tired of inaction. We love the East Bay and want more people to enjoy it too, without pushing anyone out.
