OAKLAND (KRON) – Moms 4 Housing on Monday will hold a march at noon at 14th and Broadway in Oakland.

This comes after a group of homeless mothers were evicted from a home in West Oakland where they were squatting in last week.

The group of women had been in that home since November.

When they were released from jail on Tuesday afternoon, they found their belongings on the street.

The moms say the march is to bring awareness to their cause.
