(L-R) Dominique Walker and Shereena Thomas of Moms 4 Housing in front of the West Oakland house being occupied.

Oakland city officials estimate that more than 4,000 people are homeless. Activists are demanding the city do more immediately. A group called Moms 4 Housing are taking a stand by occupying a vacant home in West Oakland.
