For the last few months, Oakland Rising has been working diligently with Urban Strategies Council, The League of Women Voters Oakland, Judy Cox, and Councilmembers Libby Schaaf and Dan Kalb to craft a potential ballot measure that would take the redistricting commission process out of the hands of elected officials and into the hands of Oakland residents. 
Good government is only good when we have the people who will be most impacted by the process helping to shape it. That’s why we are holding a special event to find out: Is Oakland Ready for a Redistricting Commission?
Please join us on 
Wednesday, April 30 
from 6-8pm 
at the East Bay Community Foundation 
to help shape the process for this important commission and learn more about how you can help Oakland voters decide for themselves.
We will have translation available, so please send this invitation broadly to your networks and join us if you can.
We believe that Oakland IS ready for more democracy. Together, we are making it happen.
