About our Rapid Response Fund:
We are in the streets and visiting encampments regularly to provide solidarity and material resources for unhoused Oakland residents as they endure illegal evictions, encampment demolitions and the daily struggles of surviving without housing. When we are notified of an urgent need, such as an unhoused neighbor in need of a tent, food, medical supplies or other material assistance, we do our best to arrange for those material needs to be met as soon as possible.
As a small, volunteer-run organization, this fundraiser will ensure that we have funds on hand to respond to urgent needs that arise throughout the year.
Please note that this donation is not tax deductible.
More About Love & Justice In the Streets:
Love & Justice in the Streets believes that the homelessness crisis in Oakland cannot be addressed in a just and humane manner without the voices and leadership contributions of unhoused community members. However, the daily hardships of living without stable housing can make it difficult or impossible to participate in policy work or community organizing efforts. By meeting the urgent needs of our unhoused neighbors and curbside communities, LJIS increases their capacity to participate in the grassroots organizing efforts to bring humane, just and lasting solutions to the Oakland homelessness crisis.
