After Uber announced plans to move into downtown Oakland, community leaders and organizations were alarmed about the impact on residents, small businesses, nonprofits and artists in a city struggling with gentrification. We launched No Uber Oakland after months of unsuccessful efforts to have a serious dialogue with Uber about its plans for supporting Oaklanders. In August 2016, Uber changed its mind and put its Oakland building up for sale. We still believe this major downtown property should be used to benefit Oakland residents and community groups struggling with gentrification, and that major corporations should work with communities where they locate to strengthen and enhance those communities. We hope others can learn from our experience.
