Community Education – Tenants’ Rights and Food Stamps

The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened many problems throughout our community and created a litany of new ones. It is important to show our most vulnerable brothers and sisters that they need not face these challenges alone.

Each year, the UC Davis School of Law organizes a day of service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. With a reputation for public service and racial justice, the King Hall community is eager to help during this time of unprecedented crisis. On January 18th, students will work alongside LSNC to offer webinars & clinics through Zoom. The schedule consists of two LSNC-led webinars focusing on government benefits that provide vital aid to the Davis and Sacramento communities. Each webinar will be followed by a clinic led by students. These clinics will be conducted through Zoom break-out rooms so that individual questions may receive tailored answers. The Zoom links for each webinar & clinic are provided below. All times listed are in Pacific time.

The first webinar will begin at 10 a.m. and will provide instruction on how to apply for CalFresh. The second webinar will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will focus on eviction and tenant’s rights. The webinars are scheduled to last an hour and the student clinics will begin shortly after each webinar ends.

Letter to UC Regents re Aggie Square

October 10, 2020

Sacramento Investment Without Displacement, of which ECOS is a member, sent a letter to UC Regents regarding our concerns about Aggie Square.

Below is an excerpt from the letter.

We are writing this letter to appeal to you and the Board of Regents to request that UC Davis and its developer Wexford Science and Technology commit to signing a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) with our broad coalition. We believe that this project could bring great possibility and promise for the future of Oak Park and other nearby neighborhoods, the City of Sacramento and UC Davis Medical Center, if the benefits are shared widely and equity and inclusion are embraced as core values.

Before this project’s Environmental Impact Report is approved, it is a moral imperative that the UC system consider our community coalition and the impacted community we represent. The leaders of our coalition are requesting a meaningful conversation with UC Davis and its developer to address inequities and unintended consequences of this project.

The Oak park community is mostly made up of people of color, low-income people and immigrants who have carried a heavy burden for generations in the history of the development of this region. Unfortunately, deep poverty, violence, inadequate affordable and safe housing, employment discrimination and the many subtle actions of hate have deeply wounded countless promising young and old souls alike. Residents have a list of concerns about how the build-out and operation of Aggie Square will impact their neighborhoods.
