The Community Democracy Project is an all-volunteer campaign working to turn the power structure right side up by putting the people of Oakland in charge of the city budget.
We need to gather 45,000 signatures from Oakland residents by December 2019 to get our initiative on the 2020 ballot. When our initiative passes, the city charter of Oakland would be amended to create neighborhood assemblies where we can meet with our neighbors, city officials, and community groups to learn about the city budget and determine priorities together. Then, every budgetary cycle, the people of Oakland would decide how much money goes to the libraries, the police department, social services, and all of the other city departments.
