Helloooo bay area bae (1 Viewer)

i just moved out of the bay because my rent was over $1000 a month (considered a steal there by most conventional standards there).

but screw that. I want to live there (my bandmate is there as well as all of my artist contacts and friends) and I can't afford/don't want to live there conventionally anymore. I am looking for a) a place to squat, crash, or share, and b) new friends to start to start a community with.

I'd be down with sharing an apartment with folks (it has to be really cheap tho), joining a co-op either as a sort-of satellite member or full housemate, doing a live-work trade, or (ideally) squatting. I have experience living, shall we say, "unconventionally" and living in a co-op, and I want to be in a radical community again! I have contacts in the Bae, as well as local knowledge, so if you want to be a partner-in-crime, or let me join your group, please hit me up. I don't want to do this alone again as I am cis-female presenting and don't want to take certain risks.

Also, if you have any local knowledge or advice you want to share, or you're in the area and just wanna say 'hi,' please hit me up with that as well. much love to you all and thanks for reading

Man I feel your pain, we were sharing a 1 bedroom APARTMENT in the east bay for $2,000 a month. Just moved out of that town to a split payments with family in a cheaper part of the bay area but as you know it's still never cheap here in the bay - super curious to here about communal communities around here. Been looking for a change of pace the last few month.

I'm also in the east bay paying about 1000/month. Would love to squat- have done it once before (for about 3 months) in Vermont. I hear that there are some abandoned buildings in north Oakland (on 59th Street.) One of my buddies just lost his place so is living in a car, I think he's interested in squatting too. Give me a shout if you're still in the area and trying to do this, we can explore and try to find abandoned properties. Also a good resource place is the long haul infoshop located in Berkeley (it is an anarchist/radical left/activist resource center.) I also have heard that there is a group called east bay homes not jails that meets at Omni commons in Oakland. It is a group devoted to providing info on squatters rights- I'm not sure when they meet however.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

You ever look back and kind of wonder even if you wanted to try to fix things... How you even begin to apologise for Fucking up someone's life??
The self defense group is going so far so great!
Three years of loving and caring, down the backed up toilet.
I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
