The Oakland Justice Coalition rallied in front of City Hall on Thursday to announce its plan to support progressive ballot initiatives and candidates in 2016. These ballot measures include the Protect Oakland Tenants Initiative, the amendment to create a police commission and the measure to establish a $20 minimum wage by 2020.
The coalition now includes the National Union of Healthcare Workers, the Oakland Education Association, the Anti Police-Terror Project, Block by Block Organizing Network, the Coalition for Police Accountability, the Community Democracy Project, the Oakland Green Party, the Oakland Alliance, the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly, the Oakland Tenants Union and Socialist Alternative.
Petitioning to gather signatures on three ballot measures for the November elections will begin Saturday, April 2 at 11 a.m. at the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project at 349 Mandela Parkway in West Oakland.
