Help Fight Racism - Black church choir unjustly fined
Organized by: April Hawkins
Members of a Black church choir are blaming an influx of affluent tech workers for thousands of dollars in fines. http://www.rawstory.com/2015/10/singing-while-black-oakland-choir-hit-with-nuisance-fines-after-tech-workers-enter-neighborhood/
As the cost of living in SF increases, we're all fleeing to Oakland. We can be good neighbors though and become part of the community instead of gentrifying and pushing people out. I'm not religious at all - this Baptist church might even be against my civil rights as a lesbian. But Black lives matter and Black communities matter, and if we're going to move into these communities, let's help keep the core alive. Join me in helping the church pay for these nuisance complaints.
