After packing these meetings for months, community members have pressured the Public Safety Committee to take action and put “gang” injunctions on the agenda!
It’s really important for people from every Oakland neighborhood to speak at the hearing. SHOW UP EARLY AT 5PM TO SIGN A SPEAKER’S CARD (You can also sign up to speak online at http://www.oaklandnet.com/cityclerk/speaker_instructions.htm
OUR STRENGTH IS IN OUR PRESENCE AND WE KNOW WE CAN WIN! Now is the time to keep the pressure on and push our elected officials to stand with us against the injunctions!
We are meeting at 5pm outside City Council Chambers. If you need to come late, that is ok - please come!

These are the four points of data that the Committee Chair has requested from OPD and City Attorney:
*A comparison of the rates of violence before and after the injunction in North Oakland.
*Costs of preparing & implementing the injunctions (in North & East Oakland).
*How people are selected for inclusion on the list and how they can seek removal from the list.
*How the program is managed.
