The time has come. Now is your chance to help make history in Oakland. Now is your chance to help build the new paradigm.

The old paradigm is the paradigm of passivity–we the people sit idly by while decisions that shape our city, our communities, our future are made for us, by forces mostly outside our control.

The new paradigm is the paradigm of participation–we the people engage in collective conversations about our shared reality, and we the people decide how to shape our city, our communities, our future.

The City Attorney’s office will send us the official Title and Summary language–to go at the top of each petition–by Tuesday. We will then be ready to gather signatures startingMay 1. (May Day, the historic international day for worker’s rights, the original Labor Day.)

Will you join us? Here is how you can help:

  • Volunteer to help gather signatures. (A few hours per month, a few hours per week, a certain number of signatures from your friends and neighbors and coworkers, whatever you are willing to give will make a difference.)
  • Make a donation.
  • Plan to join us at our launch on May 1. (RSVP for details and to join one of our teams.)
  • Phonebank with us on Sunday 4/26 at 1pm-3pm. (RSVP for location.)

Thanks for your support and for all you do to build a better world =)
