Between 2000 and 2015, as housing prices rose, the City of Richmond, the Bayview in San Francisco and flatlands areas of Oakland and Berkeley lost thousands of low-income black households. Meanwhile, increases in low-income black households during the same period were concentrated in cities and neighborhoods with lower housing prices—such as Antioch and Pittsburg in eastern Contra Costa County, as well parts of Hayward and the unincorporated communities of Ashland and Cherryland.
Large increases in the number of low-income people of color living in areas that became newly segregated and high-poverty between 2000 and 2015—such as in the unincorporated communities of Ashland and Cherryland in Alameda County and in cities in East Contra Costa County—are evidence that rising housing costs and migration patterns have contributed to new concentrations of segregation and poverty in the region.
Low-income households of color were much more vulnerable than low-income white households to the impact of rapid increases in housing prices. In the Bay Area, a 30 percent tract-level increase in median rent paid between 2000 and 2015 was associated with a 43 percent decrease in low-income households of color and a 7 percent decrease in low-income white households.
Low-income households who made any kind of move in 2015—whether they stayed within their county of origin or left it

I had the pleasure of meeting with @imbodhiwear last month to take some photos. The second pic is when Ariel told me to look up and just gaze and smile at my husband ☺️ what a sweet moment that was captured! Thank you @imbodhiwear. And this jumper is so damn comfy.
Lake Merritt, Oakland: The sparkling lake is home to five protected man-made islands, made from former wetland vegetation in the early 1900s to provide sanctuary to thousands of waterfowl and migrating birds.
