The City of Oakland, California is currently considering changes to zoning codes intended to clarify the law related to urban agriculture.
While the City should be applauded for its efforts to establish a sustainable and equitable food system in Oakland, any consideration to allow,
without restriction, animals to be raised and slaughtered as backyard livestock should be strongly opposed. For the following reasons, the City
of Oakland should prevent maintaining and/or slaughtering backyard livestock within city limits. To learn more and sign the petition, click on:
