Organizations Unite to Form 2016 Electoral Coalition




The Oakland Justice Coalition rallied in front of City Hall on Thursday to announce its plan to support progressive ballot initiatives and candidates in 2016. These ballot measures include the Protect Oakland Tenants Initiative, the amendment to create a police commission and the measure to establish a $20 minimum wage by 2020. 


The coalition now includes the National Union of Healthcare Workers, the Oakland Education Association, the Anti Police-Terror Project, Block by Block Organizing Network, the Coalition for Police Accountability, the Community Democracy Project, the Oakland Green Party, the Oakland Alliance, the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly, the Oakland Tenants Union and Socialist Alternative.



Petitioning to gather signatures on three ballot measures for the November elections will begin Saturday, April 2 at 11 a.m. at the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project at 349 Mandela Parkway in West Oakland.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
