Billy, Willy and their families have lived in their home in Oakland for the past 30 years where they've raised their children. Last year Michael Marr, the largest private landlord in Oakland who is currently facing a criminal indictment by the U.S. Department of Justice for bid-rigging foreclosure auctions during the height of the housing crisis, bought their property. Within months he raised the Martin families' rent by $800/month and the Packnett families' rent by $1000/month. In the past 10 years alone, over 25% of the black population has been displaced from Oakland by skyrocketing rents. Stop the Martin and Packnett Family evictions and stop black displacement in Oakland by phoning landlord Michael Marr today and calling on him to drop the rent increases for these families and for all families in Oakland.
Email and call Michael Marr today to ask him to drop the rent increases and back rent now by calling 510-418-6430 or emailing [email protected]!
