Harnessing community resources in solidarity with our unhoused neighbors in Oakland.
The homelessness crisis in the Oakland cannot be addressed in a just and humane manner without the voices and leadership contributions of unhoused community members. However the daily hardships of living without stable housing can make it difficult or impossible to participate in policy work or community organizing efforts. By meeting the urgent needs of our unhoused neighbors and curbside communities, LJIS increases their capacity to participate in the grassroots organizing efforts to bring humane, just and lasting solutions to the Oakland homelessness crisis.
