Description

For political strategies such as an "inside/outside" plan of action to be effective, the left needs strong movements, with organizational strength that has an ability to influence politicians to govern at the behest of the people rather than being courtiers for major corporations and special interest groups. How do we build this on a local level? How do we keep these institutions from being corrupted and becoming foundations that don't challenge power and simply protect partisan party interests? We'll ask these questions and more.
 
This is Revolution.


 
About Oakland Rising:
Oakland Rising educates and mobilizes voters in the flatlands to speak up for and take charge of the issues impacting our lives. We are a multilingual, multiracial collaborative with deep roots in East and West Oakland’s neighborhoods, proving that everyday residents working together have the power to change the way our city is run. With longtime Oakland families and our newest neighbors working shoulder to shoulder, we are building on Oakland’s incredibly rich history to advance smart, community-first solutions for a thriving Town.


 
We develop key infrastructure necessary to build progressive power by:


Flexing People Power: We build and exercise progressive political power through mass-based electoral organizing and integrated strategies, including base-building and policy advocacy.
 
Aligning Like-Minded Forces: We align and coordinate citywide and regional progressive forces through our collaborative model to build the power and profile of the social justice movement.
 
Leading With Values: We recruit, train, advance and support progressive leaders who lead in a collaborative, accountable and values-based way – that centers social justice.
