CloseThe Loopholes in Oakland Rent Control @ Oakland City Hall Council Chambers,
May 21 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
We don’t have to wait to repeal Costa Hawkins to fight displacement and stabilize the homes of thousands of tenants in Oakland NOW. Oakland City Council has the power to remove rent-control exemptions on thousands of currently owner-occupied duplex and triplex units in Oakland and protect the futures of families in thousands more. It’s time we demand they take action to stop displacement and rent gouging. Closing the rent stabilization loophole for owner-occupied 2-3 unit buildings would immediately: • Protect an estimated 5,100 tenants already living owner-occupied duplexes or triplex … Continued

Acquiring an Armored Vehicle – Oakland City Council @ Oakland City Hall
May 21 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Agenda Item 12 (Acquisition of Bearcat armored vehicle) The Josh Pawlik killing in March 2018 is a key event conditioning responses to this request to approve the acquisition of a second Bearcat. In that event, OPD deployed its existing Bearcat, as well as officers armed with AR-15 assault rifles. Compliance Director Robert Warshaw and the Executive Force Review Board pointed out that “officers did not use the armored vehicle as cover. They utilized it as a shooting platform.” (see attached, p. 2) The killing was wholly preventable. Yet OPD’s review … Continued

Tell the City Council: Coal Outta Richmond @ Richmond City Hall
We need to tell the Richmond City Council to phase out coal operations at every meeting of the council.  A couple of people speaking  at each meeting can be effective in keeping council members aware of the urgency of this issue and the popular support for the ordinance phasing out coal, presently with the city attorney’s office.  In addition, it publicizes the issue to those who watch the televised (and archived) meeting or read the on-line minutes. The opportunity to speak up about coal is during the Open Forum. This time … Continued
