Come out in Oakland for an action against City Attorney Barbara Parker who expanded the Nuisance Eviction Ordinance to include those accused but not convicted of prostitution. We will be meeting outside Oakland City Hall at 12:30 tomorrow afternoon. Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/765069606879489/?pnref=story
