As resegregation continues to reshape the region, low-income communities of color are increasingly living at the expanding edges of the Bay Area, where they struggle to find quality jobs, affordable and stable housing, public transportation, and political representation. The pandemic has highlighted the indisputable fact that our systems are failing our most vulnerable communities, especially in communities with less organizing and advocacy infrastructure.
We are honored to have Tamisha Walker as the keynote speaker to talk about the need to build power in suburban communities. Tamisha is an Antioch City Councilmember and Founding Member and Executive Director of the Safe Return Project, and is at the forefront of housing justice and reimagining community safety in a city where low-income renters of color are organizing to win tenant protections against landlords who put massive profits over people.
There will be two plenary panels: one on the implications of the election results on advancing racial justice in the Bay Area and one on creating a robust preservation ecosystem to remove housing from the speculative market and into permanent affordability.
We will also be releasing our updated regional resegregation report with new data and a summary of stakeholder interviews at the event.
Registration is $25. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, scholarships are available. Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
Detailed agenda coming soon.
