  • GrassRoots Oakland West (GROW) Incubator is a community space that supports community-driven solutions.
    The mission of GROW Incubator is to “identify and develop opportunities for the marginalized members of our community to become key stakeholders in the production of a healthy, just and equitable future.”
    Why this work is important in our community:  For many years, West Oakland was a thriving African American hub for transportation, arts, culture, community-driven businesses and community-driven solutions to social ills. Now after more than a half century of neglect, exclusionary land policies, and other socio-economic factors, our community is, once again, experiencing rapid, violent change.  A profit-driven race and class reconfiguration of our community is having devastating impact.  Long term residents of West Oakland are experiencing exorbitant rent increases and increased law enforcement targeting the drastically shrinking number of African Americans.  Recent “development” has come with displacement and is leaving the deeply rooted members of our community that remain, with reduced access to community assets.  It is important now, more than ever, to strengthen our collective community by acknowledging and celebrating each other as our most valuable resource.
