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.

This Monday Meals we had our very own Pecolia Manigo, OR Political Director and Vernetta Woods, OR IVE Team Leader share about our Fall Civic Engagement Program (CEP), focused on hearing from Oakland flatland voters on how they are being impacted by rising costs of living, along with education on how recalls are being used to undermine our democracy.
This week marks our official campaign launch! We’re on a mission to transform Oakland and Alameda County into a more inclusive and transparent city and county by building up our people power! We envision a future where our neighbors in East and West Oakland, as well as in unincorporated and south Alameda County, have an affordable place to call home, schools that provide quality education, and programs and services that serve our community’s needs. We’re reaching out to low-turnout voters and engaging them in the political process to help create a more inclusive democracy, led by communities who have historically been left out of the decision-making process.
Thank you Isaiah Toney with East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy (EBASE) and Savannah Hunter with UC Berkeley Labor Center for joining and sharing about the State of Working East Bay 2015-2019 report. We talked about the ways working class people carry the burden of our economies by being paid low wages and paying high cost of living. We looked at some data and talked about the false narrative about grifting lazy renters and who works hard.
