Anti-Displacement & New Homelessness
Oakland, CA | Years
Convened by the Dellums Institute for Social Justice, the Our Beloved Community Action Network members are community, faith, and government leaders committed to the simple proposition that every person in Alameda County should have the opportunity to stay and thrive in the new prosperous Bay Area economy.
We believe that our work to prevent displacement of low-income people of color who built our cities and stayed during the decades of disinvestment and White Flight continues Dr. King’s legacy and vision for creating “Beloved Community” in Alameda County in which,
“All people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood.”
