Make a difference - volunteer with us!

We are building a stronger California in 2022 and we want you to be a part of this large people-powered movement to get true representation in the office and push to prioritize the issues that matter the most to our communities.

We are Oakland and we are California. Together, we can educate and mobilize voters at every level of the 2022 elections – from local to statewide – to the ballot box. This is our opportunity to fight for a strong post-pandemic recovery and secure a stable future together.

We are seeking community members to help us reach voters across Oakland and unincorporated areas of Alameda County to get their opinions on important issues like:
– affordable housing,
– tax equity,
– environmental justice,
– care for all, and
– alternatives to incarceration.

We know that this is a tough time, and our communities are heavily impacted by the pandemic, the housing crisis, and many other injustices. Therefore, it’s important that we meet our community where they are and lift up their voices to continue to build people power and advocate for the living conditions we deserve!

We need you to help us by signing up to participate in our virtual phone banking events or joining our community walks to talk to our neighbors in person. Don’t worry, we’ll provide PPE equipment, training and materials!

 

Sign up to Phone Bank!

We have weekly Wednesday (from October to November) virtual phone bank shifts from 3 – 7pm. All you need is a laptop, wi-fi, and a phone to start making calls from home!

 

or Sign up to Canvass!

In November, we will reach out to our neighbors in person on Saturday, Nov 6th and 13th from 12 – 3pm. We’ll provide all the PPE equipment you need to stay safe and protected while you speak with community members.
