Oakland Rising is hosting our first-ever Open House event on Wednesday, August 28th from 4:30-630pm to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and donors. We’re excited to open our doors to you and share a more intimate look into the work and the people behind Oakland Rising.

Thanks to on-going support from volunteers and donors, Oakland Rising has been able to emerge as the premier social justice electoral formation in the East Bay. Together, we have identified over 47,000 low-income, immigrant and voters of color who want to see Oakland fulfill its promise. Together we are changing Oakland by pushing for good policies to be made into law.

Join us at our downtown office to learn more about our vision for Oakland. Meet some of our home-grown phoners and canvassers and find out why they think Oakland Rising is making a difference in the lives of Oaklanders. See our state-of-the-art phone banking center and hear about our priority policy fights for 2013. Do all of this with a nice glass of wine and some cheese in hand!

This is a free event and we won’t ask you for any money! We will also be giving away a few of our t-shirts, hoodies, water bottles, and buttons. It’s a celebration of you!

Please RSVP today and we look forward with seeing you at our office in a couple weeks!
