We're Hiring!

 We're looking for dynamic folks to join our growing team.

Volunteer with Us for Commercial Property Tax Reform!

We are looking for volunteers for our upcoming Make it Fair campaign! We will be talking to voters on the phone, on the doors, and through text about Commercial Property Tax Reform. Corporations currently benefit from a loophole in Prop 13 that allows them to make billions of dollars off of tax cuts, this is money that can be used to pay for our schools, health clinics, and other local services. Join us to make sure that corporations pay their fair share of property tax.

Please email Tracey@oaklandrising.org to sign up to volunteer.

Lead East Bay

What does it take to have public leaders who are accountable and responsive to the East Bay's most impacted communities? We believe that it requires recruiting, training and supporting leaders from our working class communities of color. To advance a much more aggressive agenda for progressive change, we need the help of leaders who apply social justice values to addressing issues ranging from affordable housing and land use to criminal justice, and who are accountable to other grassroots leaders in their communities.
