Our mission is to bring attention to the various impacts that gentrification has had on Oakland and its people. Tell me where to go explores the city’s greatest challenges, analyzing everything from the rising cost of living and increasing homelessness to the recent loss of the city’s major sports teams.
Oakland is a city with strong cultural and community ties. The people of Oakland consider its traditions, its diversity, and its arts and culture to be the main sources of Oakland’s strength. Historically, the city has been a refuge for marginalized groups, a place where difference was cherished, not merely tolerated. Pride in that multicultural heritage is emblematic of Oaklanders to this day.
