The Oakland City Council recently passed amendments to the Nuisance Eviction Ordinance (NEO) mandating landlords to evict sex workers.
Join Red Light Legal at the Oakland City Council meeting this Wednesday November 5th to voice your opposition to NEO and participate in a breakout strategy discussion as we build a coalition to see the NEO repealed.
To be clear, the NEO isn’t on the agenda and has already passed. If we want to see this ordinance reversed we’re going to have to force the issue. By showing up at the meeting we’re hoping to call the council’s attention to our opposition during public comment. We’re also trying to meet those who oppose the NEO in person. We can have a conversation in Oscar Grant Plaza, get to know one another and begin to form a plan to see this law torn down.
Bring a coat in case it’s cold outside!
