This campaign is committed to building our platform in partnership with the community. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel. We want to uplift the amazing progressive grassroots work that is already happening.

Over the next few weeks, we will host People's Assemblies on everything from public safety to education. Together we will imagine an Oakland with housing security, true public safety, sanctuary for all, and create a plan to get us there.

Our next People’s Assembly will focus on housing, and the crisis of affordability that is displacing Black communities and forcing thousands of long-time Oakland residents into the streets. We believe public land should serve the public good - not generate profit for developers. Join us to dream about an Oakland where housing is a human right, and displaced Black families have the right to return to the communities from where they were displaced.
