Right now, the Oakland City Council has a choice to make. They can choose to stand with the hundreds of residents working to implement real renter’s protections, a civilian police commission, and a $20 minimum wage - or they can choose to maintain the status quo.
Since the beginning of 2016, Oaklanders have tirelessly canvassed our city, talking to Oaklanders and gathering tens of thousands of signatures for three important ballot measures. The Protect Oakland Renter’s Act would expand renter protections to cover more homes, stop excessive rent increases and protect vulnerable tenants from eviction. Measure X would create a civilian police commission with power to oversee police policies and discipline bad officers. The third would raise Oakland’s minimum wage to $14 an hour in 2017 and $20 an hour by 2020, keeping pace with the skyrocketing cost of living in Oakland.
