Next week, Oakland Rising will celebrate 5 years of working in low-income, immigrant and communities of color to ensure that our voices are heard at City hall and at the ballot box. Together, we have identified 47,000 voters in Oakland who support our agenda to build stronger community, share public dollars fairly, strengthen economic opportunity, and ensure health and safety in Oakland and beyond. Check out our recently released “Solutions for Oakland” to find out more about our policy work in 2013.

Every year we host the Young Progressives Party and Townie Awards to raise critical funds to support our on-going civic engagement work. Oakland Rising has been able to do this work because supporters like you have given time, energy and money to make sure that our communites have a voice in our government and the decisions that impact our lives everyday. Please purchase a $25 ticket today to ensure that we can continue to do this work for another 5 years.

On Wednesday, June 19th from 5:30-7:30pm, join us at the Kaiser Rooftop Garden as we celebrate 5 years of building power for East and West Oakland and honor Oakland’s best and brightest leaders and organizations.

Together we are building something powerful in Oakland. Together, we can build so much more.
