    On November 18th, a group of mothers without shelter reclaimed possession of a vacant investor-owned property in West Oakland. On December 3rd they received an eviction notice from Wedgewood Inc., one of the country’s biggest “fix & flip” companies that has profited significantly from the housing crisis.

    Moms 4 Housing is calling on all community supporters and members of the media to come to 2928 Magnolia St. on the 17th to defend #MomsHouse. The Alameda County Sheriff’s office has confirmed that they will be enforcing the eviction order on December 17th beginning as early as 6 a.m.

Take Action

From Our Secretary

As we move into 2018, amidst the framework of contract fights, state-wide and local elections, and a Supreme Court decision that will likely severely impact labor unions, it is now more important than ever to build on the strength of our labor council. Our strategic vision is to move beyond a reactionary approach to supporting our locals and into proactively leading on issues with an impact on and beyond Alameda County that can set the national stage for the rest of labor.
