Position Papers
Economic Development That Lasts
Oakland needs a plan for its long-term economic health that combines both principles of sustainability and takes advantages of opportunities for growth. We need to make sure that Oakland residents don't get left behind.
Affordable Homes for Working Families
Oakland needs to be able to provide affordable housing for its residents and that requires commitment to addressing their needs. That's why inclusionary zoning that sets aside 20% of housing for low- and very-low income families is necessary.
Real Advocacy for Schools and Youth
Education must be made a city priority, not just a campaign promise. City leaders have to do more to resolve the crisis in Oakland schools, because these problems always manage to spill over into other parts of the city's life and because we need to prioritize the future of Oakland's children.
