As a founding member of Bay Rising, Oakland Rising is joining forces with labor unions and social justice organizations to stand up to the attacks and rollbacks of the Trump regime. Our movement is called Bay Resistance, and together we’re staging weekly actions every Tuesday for the first 100 days of this administration.

Trump has already shown in just his first few weeks as President that there are no holds barred.

His administration will stop at nothing to rollback protections for our immigrant, Muslim, disabled & LGBTQ sisters and brothers, and to silence the media & government agencies. As our communities come under fire, we are showing that our resistance grows stronger when we stand together for equal rights and access to quality healthcare, jobs, housing, education and safe neighborhoods for all.

Our first action on Inauguration Day – J20 – drew thousands of people who shut down several of the institutes responsible for backing the Trump agenda. This included the SF Immigration and Customs Enforcement office, the predatory home mortgage loan office of Wells Fargo, and 555 California of which Trump owns a third. Check out some video highlights.

We hope to see you in the streets! It’s easy to stay informed about upcoming actions. Just sign up here for updates.


Bay Resistance is convened by Jobs with Justice SF, East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy (EBASE) and Bay Rising.

Oakland Rising and our collaborative partners are united in our vision for a city that embodies health, happiness, safety, and equal opportunities for all. Our goal is to create a model of progress and sustainability that showcases the possibilities for American cities in the 21st century. We are committed to dismantling the barriers of racial, economic, political, environmental, and educational inequities that have divided us, and instead, embracing the collective strength found in our city’s diversity. We firmly believe that Oakland can achieve its full potential when every resident, student, and bus rider has the ability to shape our city’s future. This vision is attainable and we are determined to realize it through our collective actions, whether it’s through voting, meetings, or call to actions.

Every year, we release a Vision, Issues, and Policy Platform (VIPP) which outlines the annual policies that we and our eight partner organizations prioritize in order to advance racial, economic, and environmental justice in the Town. Our collaborative’s agenda encompasses a range of critical initiatives, from expanding affordable housing to creating a more equitable democracy through campaign finance reforms. These priorities are designed to provide vital protections and innovative solutions for the most vulnerable members of our community. As we continue our efforts to promote these policies, we hold conversations with thousands of voters, lead and co-host impactful town hall meetings, educate and mobilize residents and voters, and undertake various other initiatives.

To gain a deeper understanding of our commitment to resist, protect, and advance in this political moment, we invite you to explore our 2023 Vision, Issues, and Policy Platform. Together, we are making strides towards a more equitable and just Oakland, and we remain steadfast in our pursuit of change, one vote, one meeting, one march at a time.
