OAKLAND GREENS OPEN MEETING
Produced by Don Macleay and Vicente Cruz II

Come and discuss Oakland’s future in an open forum! This meeting is an open meeting to discuss the proposal to initiate an Oakland Progressive Alliance. The public is invited to come and discuss our City’s future. The forum is intended to facilitate discussion. The proposal is to initiate a progressive alliance in time for the City of Oakland elections for 2012. Four candidates for City of Oakland Council and School Board seats have already declared themselves:

Don Macleay
Candidate for Council — District 1

Vincente Cruz
Candidate for Oakland Unified School Board — District 3

Randy Menjivar
Candidate for Council — District 7

Theresa Anderson
Candidate for Council — At Large

All four candidates will be present to discuss their shared vision for our City. They offer alternatives in Oakland’s local elections of November 2012. They will also be making a call to like-minded progressives in the community to discuss making a common cause. This includes an invitation to the public in general and other independent progressive organizations. It’s high time to gather and discuss the future of the City of Oakland. Also present in the open forum will be:

Andrea Pritchett
CopWatch

Wilson Riles
Oakland Community Action Network

Laura Wells
California Greens Party

Larry Shoup and Shawn McDougal
Community Democracy Project

Oakland is in crisis in its youth, in its schools, in its government. An active, progressive leadership is needed. The Oakland Greens are proposing a platform based on the personal ethics and independence of the individual candidates coupled with a commitment to reform Oakland’s institutions, especially its budget, its Council, and its law enforcement. The Oakland Greens offer their efforts to the community and make this proposal for an Oakland Progressive Alliance to the community. They believe very strongly that a full slate of candidates, a program that covers the issues well, and a political alternative that can guide our City in a much needed new direction will come from the whole community. This is an invitation to join, to lead, to mold, and to run for office. All individuals and organizations welcome!

The forum discussions begins at 6:00 pm and at 8:00 pm — enjoy a pot luck dinner to facilitate continuing discussions!

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
