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, a free community program to help residents and staff learn about housing policy and hone their advocacy skills.

Applications for our 2023 Leadership Academy session are now closed. Please join our email list to receive updates about future opportunities.

If you are a resident of an affordable housing community who wants to get involved, please contact Community Organizer Damion Scott at
