Oakland is the most ethnically diverse city in the United States with a rich history of political activism.
With all the pain and all of the promise that are realities in our city, Oakland is a proving ground for what is possible across our state.
We're building a vibrant and healthy Oakland:
We pilot innovative programs such as Oakland Solar Mosaic and the Oakland Green Jobs Corps that fuel a thriving, green economy.
We promote smart policy solutions to the problems facing our city such as the 2011 Energy and Climate Action Plan.
As a core member of Oakland Rising, we make sure that people of color and low-income communities are a part of the city's political process.
