Community Investment

Our East Oakland chapter has played a critical role in fighting for equitable investment into the flatlands of East Oakland - fighting to reduce illegal dumping, fill unsafe potholes and bring city resources to the neighborhood. We are a key member of the Congress of Neighborhoods Coalition which fights for these same issues. In 2018, we played a role in winning a $1.2 million allocated to the Public Works Department to work on illegal dumping and to hire more city workers from our neighborhoods.
