Here are some sample tweets you can share to help get our campaign trending! We want the whole world watching how the Bay Area responds when confronted with its failure to house vulnerable people during a pandemic.

LET EVERYONE SHELTER IN PLACE

The proposed “Encampment Management Policy” uses people’s lack of housing to deny basic human rights like water, sanitation, health services, and garbage pickup. It will criminalize folks trying to survive in 95% of Oakland! #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice


Oakland’s EMP would be unspeakably cruel if it was enacted pre-COVID-19. During this pandemic & economic depression, when a wave of evictions is already putting people on the streets, the policy is genocidal. WHY NOW?! 
#STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice


#COVID19 is still spreading rapidly; these last few weeks have been the deadliest yet in California. Unhoused #Oakland residents need to be allowed to shelter in place to survive this pandemic. Oppose the EMP! #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice

 

HOUSING NOT COPS
 
Policing was founded on anti-Blackness, and that legacy continues through the criminalization of poverty and the violent policing of unhoused people. We need cops out of #Oakland, not criminalizing curbside communities! Oppose the EMP! #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight 

People with disabilities are more likely to be unable to afford housing in Oakland. Policing and sweeps are not a solution, they are just further criminalization of Black, brown, and disabled homeless people. #StopEMP is a disability issue! #HousetheBay #HousingIsAHumanRight

The people of Oakland are demanding that the City defund the police, but the Encampment Management Policy funnels yet more money into the criminalization of our communities. #StopEMP #AbolishThePolice

Sample Post #1: Stop EMP 

Oakland’s so-called “Encampment Management Policy” was crafted with input from survey respondents. The problem? Only 14% of respondents had lived experience of homelessness, and 60% were homeowners. Homeless people should be at the center of all decisions made that impact them, and enacting this policy will put their lives at risk, especially during a pandemic. Now more than ever people need safe and permanent housing, not intensified sweeps and criminalization. Oakland deserves better!

To take further action to stop the attacks on encampments, text HOMESNOW to 797979 and be ready to roll out on 10/20 for an action at 5pm. Details will be sent through the text blast at 4pm on Tuesday. #StopEMP and defend our unhoused neighbors! #stopEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice #HousetheBay


Sample Post #2: Let us Shelter in Place!

Oakland’s EMP would be unspeakably cruel if it was enacted pre-COVID-19. During this pandemic & economic depression, when a wave of evictions is already pushing people to the streets, the policy is genocidal. WHY NOW?! This policy explicitly violates CDC guidance that advises a halt to all encampment evictions at a time when #COVID19 is still spreading rapidly. Unhoused #Oakland residents need to be allowed to shelter in place to survive this pandemic. Oppose the EMP!

Sample Post #3
: Abolish the police!

Policing in America was founded on anti-Blackness, and that legacy continues through the criminalization of poverty and homelessness and through the violent policing of unhoused people in need. If Oakland’s City Council approves this “Encampment Management Policy” they will continue this legacy by underfunding the community services and housing resources necessary to meet the basic needs of poor people, and instead sending police to criminalize unhoused people for the ways they survive. Racist gentrification policies have pushed Black Oaklanders out of their homes, and now racist police are trying to push them off of the street, and often into jails. We need police out of our communities.

DEJEN QUE TODOS PUEDAN ‘SHELTER IN PLACE’

 

La “Politica de Gestion de Campamentos” propuesta se usa la falta de alojamiento de la gente para negarles sus derechos humanos como el agua, el saneamiento, los servicios de salud, y la recolección de basura. Va criminalizar la gente tratando sobrevivir en 95% de Oakland. #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice

 

Durante este pandemia y depresión económica, en que un ola de los desalojos ya está forzando la gente a las calles, la política no es solo cruel y inhumano; es genocida. #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice

 

#COVID19 todavía se esta propagando; estas ultimas semanas han sidos los más mortíferos hasta ahora. Los residentes de #Oakland sin casas necesiten ser permitidos ‘shelter in place’ para sobrevivir este. Luche contra el EMP! #STOPEMP #HousingIsAHumanRight #AbolishThePolice

 

 ALOJAMIENTO NO POLICIA 

 

La policía fue fundado en el racismo anti-Negra, y ese legado sigue en la criminalización de la pobreza y el violente patrullaje de personas sin casas. Necesitemos la poli fuera de #Oakland, no la criminalización de las comunidades de las aceras.

 

La gente con discapacidades son más propensos a no poder pagar la vivienda en Oakland. La policía y los barridos no son una solucion; solo son un otro extención mas de la criminalización de la gente con discapacidades, sin casas, Negra, y Moreno. #StopEMP es una problema de la discapacidad! #HousetheBay #HousingIsAHumanRight

 

La gente de Oakland están exigiendo que la ciudad difundir la policía, pero la Política de Gestión de Campamentos encauza todavía más dinero en la criminalización de nuestr@s comunidades. #StopEMP #AbolishThePolice  

42% de personas sin casas en Alameda County son incapacidades. #ResisteEMP para honrar los derechos de personas incapacidades.

Personas incapacidades son heridas disproportionadamente por la captura de la propiedad y el desplazamiento forzado, y se enfrentarán el apuro extremo si relegadas a areas lejos del acceso a comida, agua, y otros necesidades. – Homeless Action Center
