Have you fallen down the rabbit hole yet?
Here are some suggested things to work on. Please add!
- Work on the tagging scheme for housing crisis-related articles. We currently have "housing", "gentrification", "housing crisis", etc.
- Create a community resources portal. Oakland Wiki has a directory that could give you some ideas.
Some random ideas for later:
- Research a building or add some history info! This page has lots of advice about how to dig up old information and beautiful old photos from public archives.
- more gentrification stuff: ...information about ellis act and other policies, protests, organizing, etc.
Tons more on tech buses:

- Counterforce. And "http://kevinroseisaterribleperson.wordpress.com/" - import text (side will probably be dead in a few years)
