What does repealing Alameda’s Exclusionary Zoning rule have to do with the broader campaigns for racial justice & housing justice on the island?

Join us for a conversation about how repealing Alameda’s exclusionary zoning law, Article 26, is one piece of broader work for housing justice – which necessarily includes racial and economic justice – in the City of Alameda. We will talk with Rasheed Shabazz, Alameda historian and activist, and Laura Thomas, the Vice President of Renewed Hope Housing Advocates. Then, we will share information on how you can take action to pass Measure Z, the repeal of Article 26.

This event is open to all members and supporters. It will focus on this measure in the City of Alameda, but residents of any other place are welcomed to join and learn about the impacts racial inequity in housing policy, anti-affordable housing campaigns, and multi-family housing bans have had in the East Bay suburbs.

FRIDAY, September 18th– 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Read Up: If you’re interested in reading about the historical context of racism and housing in Alameda, we compiled a collection of articles tracing the history from the early 1900’s to the present day. Download it here.

This event has concluded. A recording of the event is available on our Facebook Page and will soon be available in the Training and Presentations section of our website.
