Best Vision of Development that Preserves Diversity

Development Without Displacement Report by Causa Justa/Just Cause

This 110-page report released last year provides data, history, and personal stories to explain the ways in which development has led to the displacement of working-class people of color in Bay Area cities. The report also outlines many practical steps that cities can take to protect current residents from displacement, including a few that Oakland has adopted in the past year. One of these, for example, is the Tenant Protection Ordinance, which bars landlords from harassing tenants into moving out in order to rent the units at higher rates to wealthier occupants. Beyond specific measures, this report projects a vision of development in which current residents have a strong voice in deciding on the future of their neighborhoods.
