Join the Oakland Justice Coalition to talk politics in Oakland, endorsements, campaigns, elections, ballot initiatives, canvassing, the Renters’ crisis in Oakland and next steps.

Come learn about the candidates we have or soon will be endorsing in races for Oakland school board and City Council. Come learn what you can do to join the fight for a fair and just Oakland for workers, renters, homeowners and the homeless, school parents and school kids.

Concise Agenda:
- Presentation on state of school privatization
- Candidate corner. How to get involved in OJC-endorsed campaigns.
- Ballot Measures and next steps

Directions: go directly across 14th St. from City Hall at the crosswalk, continue in about 20 yards, it’s the building diagonally to your left.

We’re building a people’s movement driven by the power of organizations with different goals coming together as one to support each other and build collective strength. We have anchored our 2016 work in three demands, all captured in ballot initiatives proposed by community-led grassroots organizations.

Strengthen rent control and other tenant protections to stabilize rent prices and stop displacement of Black, Brown and poor people from the community they helped to build; as proposed by the Oakland Tenants Union and Citywide Network.

Create a police commission with the authority to fire the police chief and conduct independent investigations of incidents of police violence; as proposed by the Coalition for Police Accountability.

Establish a $20 minimum wage by 2020 and fair scheduling regulations, and mandate enforcement for both; as proposed by the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly.
