Political Action/Campaigns

Committee Chair - Pamela

  The PAC of BBBON communicates with Steering Committee and General Assembly on political and electoral issues of concern to Oakland residents.
To add just a couple of past and possible roles that the PAC has played in the past 4-5 years:
1)  sponsor or co-sponsor candidates' forums
2)  make electoral endorsements and help publicize and work for endorsed candidates
3)  hold GA meetings on topical local issues and orchestrate CC testimony, as needed
4)  help mobilize and participate in neighborhood canvassing efforts (for specific issues)
5)  track voting records of CC members as need arises
6)  support and/or work in coalition with other grassroots or political groups in city on topical issues, especially in flatlands.
