The Protect Oakland Renters campaign to strengthen protections against illegal rent increases and evictions entered the home stretch this weekend. Supporters and volunteers gathered at the Lake Merritt colonnades Saturday morning to the (awesome!) beats of SambaFunk for a campaign kickoff.
Volunteers headed off to spread the word among local business owners and merchants in along Grand and Lakeshore, dozens of whom enthusiastically displayed window signs supporting Measure JJ. Thanks to all our incredible, community-minded small merchants and amazing volunteers! Check out the highlights here!
Of course, this is just the beginning! Election Day is November 8 and vote by mail starts in October. JOIN US TO PROTECT OAKLAND RENTERS IN 2016!
