#Moms4Housing: Meet the Mother & Daughter Armed Police Just Evicted from a Vacant House in Oakland

We continue our conversation with Oakland mother Misty Cross, who was evicted alongside other mothers fighting homelessness Tuesday from a vacant home they had been occupying for two months. Facing homelessness and skyrocketing rents, the working mothers moved into the house on 2928 Magnolia Street in November and stayed despite an eviction notice from real estate developer Wedgewood Properties. Their movement — Moms 4 Housing — gained international attention and became a rallying cry against rampant income inequality and homelessness in the Bay Area and across the U.S. But early Tuesday morning, Cross and three others were arrested by a heavily militarized police force, sparking outrage. All four were released on bail Tuesday afternoon. We also speak with Cross’s daughter Destiny Johnson and Oakland activist Carroll Fife, the director of the Oakland office for Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment.
