Your support helps to fuel exciting campaigns to advance progressive leaders and policies including increasing funding for schools and reforming the criminal justice system. And with the 2020 Census around the corner, this year we'll also use our proven civic engagement model to make sure that our hard to count community members in East and West Oakland are counted in a safe way to help bring resources to our communities, and ensure fair and accurate representation. With multiple campaigns to wage, we need your support!


We’ve set a high bar of raising $60,000 for our annual celebration on June 20 – and we need support from YOU to reach our goal! These funds will go to power our work to hold corporations accountable and campaigns that will reach East & West Oakland voters and help build political power for long-time working-class families in the Town.


By purchasing your ticket, you’re supporting our campaigns -- Oakland's LARGEST ground campaigns to bring resources into our communities. And as we continue to run campaigns, our base of over 60,000 supportive voters -- or about 25% of Oakland’s total electorate -- will continue to grow!


The Oakland Progressives Party is your opportunity to help us continue to expand community power and build upon our track record of wins which include:

  • electing Nikki Fortunato Bas and Sheng Thao to city council, two progressive women of color who unapologetically stand for their values and the people with common sense solutions (2018);
  • The halting of the proposed development of the A’s stadium near Laney College and Chinatown with our partners at APEN, preventing more displacement at the hands of unchecked corporate development (2017);
  • Measure JJ, the Protect Oakland Renters Act, providing protections to tenants amidst skyrocketing rents (2016);
  • Measure FF, increasing Oakland’s minimum wage and providing workers with paid sick days (2014); and
  • Prop 30, generating $6-9 Billion per year for education, healthcare, and public services by increasing the income tax on the wealthiest Californians (2012).


Thanks to our growing list of supporters!
