Oakland, California



The grass-roots organization utilizes rights-based services, policy campaigns, civic engagement and direct action to improve conditions in Bay Area neighborhoods, create strong, equitable communities and foster a larger multiracial, multigenerational movement to bring about fundamental change. Funding goes toward the Strategic Healthy Homes Program, which advances equitable housing policies, strengthens code enforcement, bolsters renter protection and preserves healthy, affordable housing for low-income tenants in the East and West Oakland neighborhoods.
