Re: “Updated: Fearing Displacement, Oakland Chinatown Advocates Demand Community Benefits from Developer

I don't see how new MARKET RATE housing is going to benefit the community. Sure there will be housing, but there are hundreds of families in Chinatown who needs AFFORDABLE housing.

There are people who have lived here for generations, who were born here, that NEEDS housing. While most of these market rate housing projects are certainly being made to attract and provide for those moving in, those who have lived here all their lives are going to be forced to leave as the thousands of families who have already been forced to leave.

I have worked in Chinatown for a decade and I fear that all these new housing developments will end up pushing out residents of Chinatown and ultimately the people that is Chinatown.

And we are not in this for ourselves, we are in this for our community and for our Chinatown.
