Oakland housing is in the middle of a corporate takeover. Billion dollar corporations are swooping into our city, buying up our homes, and pushing us out so they can make maximum profits. ACCE Oakland is fighting back by organizing to pass stronger renter protections, including winning a stronger rent stabilization and eviction protections in the past few years.
ACCE Oakland has also been proud to partner with the Oakland Community Land Trust to help dozens of tenants reclaim their homes from slumlords and speculators, removing housing from the speculative market and making it permanently affordable and under community control.
Lastly, ACCE Oakland also organizes to ensure that every tenant is provided with a safe, healthy, and dignified place to live by empowering tenants to assert their rights, hold bad landlords accountable, and change laws to keep our homes habitable and healthy.
ACCE Oakland is a part of the Oakland Progressive Alliance to refund, restore and reimagine what our our city could look like if we divested from racist and harm-perpetuating institutions and invested in the things that really make our communities safe - housing, social services, education, living-wage jobs, and transformative justice. Together, we are fighting to win a People’s Budget - justice and equity for every Oakland neighborhood.
