This year, Oakland Rising turns 10 years old!! On this big anniversary, we find ourselves having major opportunities to bring critical resources to immigrant, working-class, and communities of color. With multiple campaigns to wage, we need your support more than ever this election year.
Oakland Progressives Party + Townie Awards is the premier summer event for movement builders and change makers. Every year, our annual fundraiser brings together social justice organizers, political leaders, and community members committed to working together to build an inclusive and equitable Oakland for everyone.
As we’ve doubled our staff size and expanded our programs over the past year, we continue to prove that we have a model that works. Just last fall, in collaboration with our partners at the Asian Pacific Environmental Network, our voter education campaign helped to stop the proposed development of the A’s stadium complex near Laney College and Chinatown, preventing more displacement of immigrant, working-class, and residents of color at the hands of unchecked corporate development. And as we continue to run campaigns, our base of has grown to over 62,000 supportive voters -- or about 25% of Oakland’s total electorate!
Our 10 year anniversary party is your opportunity to help us continue to grow community power and build upon our track record of wins.
We’ve set a high bar of raising $75,000 for our annual celebration on June 28 -- and we need YOUR support to reach our goal! These funds will go to power our leadership development program and civic engagement campaigns that will reach East & West Oakland voters and help build political power for long-time working class families in the Town.
