For our first Monday Meals of 2024, we had Pecolia Manigo, Political Director of Oakland Rising and Vernetta Woods, IVE Team Leader of Oakland Rising share about our crucial work with the We Are California campaign surveying Alameda County voters on public safety and tax equity, both on-the-ground and on the phones.

“If we believe in the Oakland that everyone describes, that everyone says “I miss that old Oakland” – well that old Oakland took care of each other. We have to get back to those values, we have to bring back the importance of violence prevention as a care strategy.” -Pecolia Manigo

Watch to learn about how we are informing voters about what’s happening in their county to find solutions together that will transform our community.
