My Eden Voice
MEV was born in 2018 to unite grassroots community organizations in the Eden Area communities of Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo, and Hayward Acres to build community power and advance community-based campaigns that brings resources, investments, and greater equity to our communities.
My Eden Voice builds community power to win campaigns that advance racial, housing, economic, language, and environmental justice for the urban unincorporated Alameda County communities. We develop leaders and strengthen relationships among residents to hold government officials accountable and advocate for policy changes that push for equity.
My Eden Voice envisions a community where residents are proud to live and work, with affordable housing, economic prosperity, quality education, and a healthy environment for generations to come.
As residents of the Eden Area, we come together to create a better future for our communities. We want affordable housing, safe streets, healthy families, and an economy that works for all.
