We’re looking for people to join our exciting campaign advancing economic, racial and environmental justice in East Oakland. We are building a team of social justice advocates to educate and mobilize residents around the 2020 Census. An accurate Census count means: access to affordable housing, lunches for kids, funding for health centers, and fair political representation.

If you or someone you know are self-motivated, reliable, and a team player with a positive attitude, and you are interested in racial, economic and environmental justice, then Oakland Rising is the place for you!

Join our team of Outreach Workers who will speak to community members at the door and over the phone this fall about the importance of filling out the 2020 Census. Our community counts on us, and one thing we can do to help our families and neighbors is join together to fill out the Census.

Please complete the online application by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4. If you have any questions or need assistance with the application process, please contact Laneisha Butler at [email protected] or 510-261-2600.

CAMPAIGN DATES: Sundays – Thursdays, Oct. 20 to Nov. 14

PAY: $18/hour; 1 meal will be provided each workday

This is a part-time (5 hrs/day) temporary job.

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.
