Help Fund Our Civic Engagement Initiative Campaign
WHAT IS CDP? Community Democracy Project is an all-volunteer grassroots campaign to put the people of Oakland in charge of the city budget. We believe the people of Oakland should have a real say in decisions that affect our quality of life and our communities. That’s why we are working to amend Oakland’s city charter such that the people of Oakland would decide how to spend money in their own community.
WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING? Our members have rallied together to pool resources, and now we come to you asking for support. We are in need of donations that would ease the task of collecting 40,000 Oakland voter signatures (which is the amount needed to put our initiative on the city ballot for the next election). Our detailed campaign budget plan calls for high-need items such as petition forms, safe storage, and flyers for outreach.
Together, we can make this awesome opportunity a reality for Oakland: a budget truly of the people, for the people, and by the people. Thanks for reading!
