Pass TOPA! Oakland City Council Meeting
April 14, 2020 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Join EBHO, ACCE Oakland, Oakland Community Land Trust, and other community advocates at the Oakland Community and Economic Development committee to call on council to pass the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA). This legislation allows tenants to be first in line to purchase a building if the landlord decides to sell it. They could buy it as a collective or with the support of a Land Trust or other non-profit organization. This legislation provides a way for tenants and nonprofit organizations to stabilize housing for existing residents and shift the patterns of exploitative ownership and land speculation by corporations in Oakland.
