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 our upcoming community event in Oakland!
As shockwaves of uncertainty and displacement from the latest tech boom ripple through the Bay Area, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, AEMP is hosting a community event to mark the completion of recent anti-displacement work in Alameda County supported through a grant from the Creative Work Fund. At the event, AEMP will unveil a new report and map analyzing displacement related data from Oakland, Fremont, and the City of Alameda obtained through court and rent board record requests. We will also highlight personal narratives of displacement and resistance, honor those who participated in our East Bay oral history project, and amplify the work of collaborators. Facebook Invite Here!
Over the course of the last year, the AEMP has partnered with Tenants Together, a California-wide tenants rights and advocacy organization, to access previously inaccessible eviction data in Alameda County. On the day of the event, we will release a 20-page report highlighting data, which includes a list of Oakland’s newest serial evictors and analysis of eviction trends. We will also populate our online narrative map with new oral histories and video pieces that we have produced with a number of community partners, documenting stories of individuals and collectives resisting displacement in Oakland, Fremont, and Alameda.
