Resident Community Organizing Program

EBHO’s Resident Organizing Program seeks to empower affordable housing residents to be affordable housing advocates alongside our non-resident members and allies, and to engage them in EBHO’s campaigns and programs. Based in Oakland and expanding throughout the East Bay, RCOP Committee runs transformative leadership trainings and engages affordable housing residents in the policy and neighborhood decisions that affect them directly. Many of our RCOP members are graduates of our Leadership Academy, where they hone their  skills in advocating for housing justice.

Applications for our 2020 Leadership Academy are being accepted until February 14th. 2020 Leadership Academy Application.

If you are a resident of an Affordable Housing community who wants to get involved, please contact Dolores Tejada at
