KPFA 94.1-FM Berkeley Oakland Community and Mayor Asks State Funds For Brooklyn Basin Project's Affordable Housing

Around one hundred Oakland residents rallied today at the site of the largest housing development on the Oakland waterfront in decades. The "Brooklyn Basin" project is set to build more than 3,000 units for $1,5 billion at the old Oakland army base site.
Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf, East Oakland community members and affordable housing activists came together to urge governor Jerry Brown to honor his promise to give $45 million to finance affordable housing in the project.
Pacifica's Nina Pareja was at the rally and filed this report.
