Derrick

Derrick is a survivor. After losing millions of dollars in the Great Recession of 2008, Derrick’s life then snowballed to living in a tent homeless in Oakland, California.

Over time, other homeless people started camping around Derrick, and a small homeless encampment grew into a tent city. We featured the tent community here in VR180. 

Derrick is running for mayor. You can learn more and support his campaign here.
