Location Details:
14th St. and Broadway, Oakland, CA

With the cost of rent driven up by gentrification, plus childcare, healthcare and other bills, $8/hour is not enough to survive in Oakland! Mayor Jean Quan says Oakland is "rising" but she forgets that the lowest paid workers, who are more likely to be people of color and women, are left behind.

$15/hour livable wage for all Oakland workers!

Wed. May 1st, 5pm 14th & Broadway

Rally, march and noise demo throughout Downtown Oakland, exposing the practices of corporations who thrive off of low wage labor

Ongoing planning assemblies:

Wednesdays 6pm and Sundays 2pm at 19th and Telegraph (in the park along Rashida Muhammad St.)
