A movement is forming in Oakland to keep Uber out.
Uber has acquired the former Sears building on Broadway in Oakland, but this group is trying to keep the company from taking the building over – at least for now.
It first wants Uber to agree to preserve Oakland as a diverse city for people of all income levels.
The group has set a 10-point platform to keep Oakland from over-gentrifying.
It includes things like providing job training for local workers and maintaining non-profits for aspiring artists.
