Goal Thermometer

Dear Friends and Family,

 

I know that you are like me – when our communities are under attack, you don’t just sit back and wait for things to change. You look for opportunities to be part of the change. This election year we have the opportunity to strengthen the ability of the Bay Area and California to protect our people -- esp. the working-class, immigrants, and people of color.


That’s why I’m asking you to join me in throwing support behind Oakland Rising Action, an organization that is fighting for the very soul of our city, our state and our country in the midst of this void of strong moral and political leadership. Will you contribute toward my goal and help fund Oakland’s biggest voter outreach operation?


Oakland Rising Action has a model of building community power that works and results in wins. Since 2010, they have built a base of over 62,000 supportive voters - that’s over 25% of all Oakland voters! And their 1-on-1 conversations with voters get the goods. In fact, their work increases voter turnout by 10% amongst people with whom we spoke! That is what flexing political power looks like, and it’s HUGE since many races are decided by just a few hundred votes. Using this model, they were able to help pass expanded renter protections for Oaklanders in 2016 (Measure JJ) and so much more.

 

Will you give to their 2018 election work a kick start by making a donation now?

As an organization representing Oakland residents who believe in racial, economic, and environmental justice, Oakland Rising Action operates from the same values as us -- inclusion, fairness, transformation, love and liberation. Now is the time to support this work to magnify the voices of our community and bring a true moral and political compass back to Oakland and beyond. I hope you will join me in throwing down for the Town!


So, what do you say? Are you ready to fuel the change you want the Town to see? Please consider:


  • $500 for the 500+ Oakland voters they will speak to each day leading up to elections
  • $250 towards recruiting 250 volunteers in 2018
  • $100 for the hundreds of signatures we're collecting to qualify crucial issues like the Schools Funding Act (schoolfundingnow.com) for the fall ballot
  • $50 which is about dollar a week for the year
  • $25 for each of the 25+ precincts in which they’ll knock on doors
  • $10 because you believe in our work!
