After 60 Years, A Family In West Oakland Is Told to Leave Their Home

In the last ten years, 14,000 homes have gone into foreclosure in Oakland. Annette Miller and her family have lived on 682 30th Street in West Oakland for sixty years and four generations. In 2006, and at the height of the housing bubble, Miller's father mortgaged the house. Now after seven years of dutifully paying back the mortgage, the bank has declared the family has no legal right to their home and must quit the premises by Monday.
