Homelessness is a class and racial justice issue. 70% of the homeless individuals in Oakland are black and 38% report having at least one disabling condition.
Thousands of unsheltered people live in Oakland. Many are crowded into unsafe and unsanitary encampments from which they may be evicted as a result of the City’s new policies. Kehilla’s Homeless Action Committee believes it’s time for a more vigorous response by our community in keeping with our core Jewish values.
We meet on Zoom twice per month, at 3:30 PM on the first and third Wednesdays. Please contact Jeanne Finberg for the Zoom link, or to join our e-mail list.
