HANDS OFF DRIVER PLAZA!

Memorial Fruit Tree Orchard and other community projects threatened with destruction by City of Oakland

The Driver Plaza Memorial commUNITY Fruit Tree Orchard, planted by neighbors in honor of people who have died or been killed, is now under threat of destruction by Oakland Public Works Agency (PWA) and Oakland Parks and Recreation. Led by Self-Help Hunger Program (SHHP) and Sante Fe CAN Beautification Committee, over 250 community members have come together for the past two years to plant trees of peace, healing and reconciliation at Driver Plaza.

In 2016, without warning, PWA removed 20 tree collard plants that SHHP harvested and used to feed the community every Tuesday at Driver Plaza.

Dear Councilmember Kalb,

My name is __________________ and I live in the ________________neighborhood of Oakland/Berkeley.

I support the Driver Plaza Memorial CommUNITY Fruit Tree Orchard and the other programs taking place at Driver Plaza that are used to increase access to healthy food and build stronger, healthier communities better able to withstand the storm of displacement. Please instruct Oakland Public Works Agency and Oakland Parks and Recreation to not destroy any of the trees planted or benches built by community members at Driver Plaza.

I encourage you to please set up a meeting with Aunti Frances and other members of Self-Help Hunger Program and the Driver Plaza community before taking any action at Driver Plaza.

Public Land for Public Good!
Sincerely,

XXXX
