Welcome to the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project Newsletter!

Join us for upcoming events!

We at the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project wanted to send out an update as to some of the maps and visualizations that we've been making. We also want to invite you to two upcoming events this week!

First, we've got a fundraiser at Bissap Baobob this coming Wednesday! We will be raising money for our data vizualization and narrative work and will give a short presentation on what we've been up to recently. Baobab will kindly contribute 20% of the proceeds from all of the food and drink ordered on the floor from 6-9 to the AEMP, so please join us, indulge in some great food and drink and help us continue our work documenting the fight for affordability in the Bay Area. Then, stay for the great salsa music with DJ Waltdigz and dance it off! Also, if you can't make it but want to donate to us, feel free to here! And, the facebook invite is here!

Update from Alameda County
 Since September 2015, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project has been engaging in work in Alameda County, focusing on Oakland, Fremont, and the City of Alameda. Partnering with Tenants Together, and with support from the Creative Work Fund, we have gathered eviction data in all three cities, which we will be releasing and mapping at the end of the summer. We've also built partnerships with the Oakland Creative Neighborhood Coalition, the Alameda Renters Coalition, Fremont RISE, Washington High School, and the Bay Area Video Collective, and are in the midst of recording oral histories and building community power maps with them. Check out our new map up at the Betti Ono Gallery constructed with the Oakland Creative Neighborhood Coalition below!
 Also, if you have been evicted or threatened with eviction on either side of the Bay, please fill out our survey to help us crowdsource data here. If you are interested in sharing your story of displacement or gentrification as part of our oral history project, feel free to email us here. Lastly, if you are interested in collecting signatures to protect Oakland renters, you can sign up here.
New Maps
No-Fault Evictions, SF
We updated our no-fault eviction map here, so that you can view the accumulation of no-fault evictions in San Francisco from the 1990s until the end of 2015. It's not so pretty.
Luis Gongora Map
This is our new mapping tribute to Luis Gongora, a homeless recently evicted man recently executed in cold blood by the SFPD in the Mission District. In this story map, we chart the events that ensued after his murder, leading to a 17-day hunger strike outside of the Mission Police Station by the #Frisco5, and now a city-wide uprising.
Mission Fires
We mapped ten years of fires in the Mission here. While sure enough, fires have increased since 2014, the more dramatic increase is in the financial loss incurred by them, which surpasses the rate of property value increase between 2014 and 2015.
SF Development
We're keeping track of new development projects in the pipeline here. You can check out what's currently slated for construction in this new map, layered upon a background SF land use.
Rent Change
We mapped shifts in median gross rent in SF and Alameda County, viewable here. Drag the bar to compare 2011 and 2014 by zip code, using ACS data.
Black Population Shift
We've mapped the loss of the black population on both sides of the Bay, comparing 2011 and 2014 by zip code, here.
ed lee
We recently collaborated on a music video with Candace Roberts, "Hello, Ed Lee," contributing maps and imagery related to the homeless crisis in the wake of the Super Bowl, along with the overall eviction crisis. Check it out!
