Come out this Saturday at 12:30 pm to 499 14th St for the Oakland Justice Coalition's next canvass to collect signatures for our three ballot initiatives.

We will be gathering signatures for our three endorsed ballot measures for 2016: the Protect Oakland Tenants Initiative, sponsored by Oakland Tenants Union and the Citywide Development Network, the charter amendment to create a police commission sponsored by the Coalition for Police Accountability, and the measure to establish a $20 minimum wage by 2020 and enforce fair scheduling regulations from the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly.

Rent Stabilization Measure

  • Set limits on rent increases tied to the Consumer Price Index (inflation)
  • Close loopholes in the current Just Cause Eviction Ordinance to prevent no-fault evictions

Minimum Wage / Fair Scheduling Measure

  • Raise minimum wage to $14/hr in 2017, slowly increasing to $20/hr by 2020
  • Create and enforce rules for worker scheduling and on-call requirements, so that workers’ lives will not be turned upside down by continually changing work schedules

Police Commission Measure

  • Establish civilian oversight of our Police Department
  • The Commission will be able to investigate police misconduct, review complaints and discipline officers. If progress toward reform is not being made, they will have the authority to fire the police chief
