Pamela Price has earned four new endorsements from leading progressive, labor, community-based and advocacy organizations. Oakland has ranked voting for the mayoral election, to be voted upon in the November 2018 midterm elections. New endorsements for Price are as follows: Black Women Organized for Political Action (Rank #1), the California Nurses Association (Rank #2), Our Revolution East Bay (Rank #2), and the International Longshoremen and Warehouse Union (Dual).
BWOPA began in 1968 to support the late Ronald Dellums’ campaign. Now BWOPA focuses on educating and empowering Black women in politics, including getting out the vote and voter information.
Our Revolution was born out of the Bernie Sanders movement for reclaiming democracy for the working people of our country. They support a new generation of progressive leaders, and aim to “transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families,” according to their website.
The International Longshoremen and Warehouse Union is a longstanding organization, deeply active in Oakland’s social justice movements—at the Port of Oakland and beyond.
Price is already endorsed by several faith-based community leaders, small business owners, the Wellstone Democratic Club (Rank #2), the John George Democratic Club (Rank #1), and many others.
Price is a civil rights attorney, running a campaign on a 10-point platform: Eliminate homelessness, solve the affordable housing crisis, expand services for mental health and addiction, strengthen public safety, clean Oakland’s streets, hold law enforcement accountable for wrongdoing, boost Oakland’s public school education, create new jobs for Oaklanders, protect Oakland’s status as a sanctuary city, and support Oakland’s small businesses.
