Oakland Rising seeks an Executive Director with a proven track record of winning elections, ballot measures, and leading organizing and policy campaigns to advance progressive political power in Oakland.
A recall is an election process that removes elected officials from their positions before they complete their term. It is not like other democratic procedures because it does not require the support of the majority of voters. It also results in an additional or “special” election to take place.
Get ready to come to your door and answer your phone! With the Primary less than a month away, we are running a winter Civic Engagement Program to reach voters on the most pressing issues impacting our communities this year. Our mission is clear – to ensure that every resident of Oakland and Alameda County has access to affordable housing, quality education, and essential city services.
2023 marked 15 years of Oakland Rising building a true progressive voice and a progressive political landscape in Oakland! And while neo-liberals and others have co-opted the word progressive, let’s be clear: we stand for community-led solutions that center racial, economic and environmental justice, and ALWAYS puts people before profit.
We’re still buzzing from the incredible energy at our 15th Anniversary celebration earlier this month at 7th West. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made this an unforgettable night and one for the books! We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our Movement Friday DJ’s who helped make this event happen and dropped the heat on the dance floor.
“If we have democracy vouchers, people will have a stake in the system and an incentive to say, ‘I have $100—who is the candidate who is going to come speak with me, hear my concerns, and include me in the process.'” — Aura Vasquez, advisor, Los Angeles for Democracy Vouchers
