    • dear aida pablo,
      I think your post was great because you were very explicit about your topic. A line that stood out to me was when you said that there was 4,071 homeless people in oakland because thats a lot of people on the streets and without jobs. I agree with your point about raising rent is a problem because the rent will keep going up to the point where it’s to expensive. Thanks for writing and keep it up.

    • Dear Aida, I think your post was good because my topic was also about homelessness and how they ended up there because of different ways like housing being too expensive. A line that stood out to me was that ret is going up and that people go to court because they fall back on their rent and sometimes go to jail for their things. I agree with your point about rent being too high and that’s something that people can work on to help people without displacement. Thanks for writing and keep it up and thank you again for letting me read your blog post.

    • Hi Aida,

      You picked a really important topic to write about, and it’s clear you feel passionately about it. I appreciate that you clearly explained the difference between gentrification and displacement – it’s very important to make this distinction. I think it would help your argument if you found quotes end evidence that directly address homelessness and housing costs in Oakland, since that seems to be your focus. I’m curious – did you do any research on Moms4Housing as part of your project? It seems like that could be a relevant connection!

    • Hello Aida!

      My name is Christine from San Jose State University. I admire what you have said in your post because not a lot of people understand who you truly are until you say something. You know who you truly are and you have expressed that in your shadow box and post. One thing that you have said in your post that I really like is that the flowers and colors in your shadow box represent that you are free and outgoing. It reminds me of people being like flowers and that their purpose is to grow and put color into peoples’ lives!
      Thank you 🙂
