Targeting the Legacy of Redlining and Divestment from Communities of Color

As a direct result of California’s history of redlining and divestment from Black and Brown neighborhoods, the Bay Area housing and displacement crisis has hit the low-income communities of color we serve the hardest. In addition to providing zealous eviction defense to families experiencing housing emergencies, we strive to implement long-term policy solutions that prioritize people over profit.

We also recognize homelessness as both a human rights crisis and a racial justice issue. We are the only legal organization in the East Bay with a practice devoted to advocacy for the human, civil, and constitutional rights of people experiencing homelessness. Until housing is truly enshrined as a human right, we will continue to fight to improve the security, dignity, and quality of life of people without homes.
