"Housing Justice" was created to bring light to the rising homeless crisis in Oakland. Oakland’s homeless population rose 47% between 2017 and 2019, one of the biggest two-year increases of any California city, according to the San Fransisco Chronicle.
In the count taken in January using federal guidelines, Oakland had 861 sheltered people and 3,210 unsheltered people, bringing the estimated number of homeless people to 4,071. In 2017, Oakland had 859 sheltered people and 1,902 unsheltered residents, a total of 2,761.
