MOBN! has just donated to the Oakland Fund for Public Innovation, which operates The Oakland COVID-19 Relief Fund. This fund was launched recently by Mayor Schaaf and Councilmembers Kalb, Bas and McElhaney as an emergency fund to serve Oakland’s most vulnerable residents and first responders during the pandemic.
Make Oakland Better Now! will have a table at Oakland's Art + Soul Festival all weekend. We'll be at booth 267. Come visit us! Board members will be there ready to talk to people about our organization’s history, advocacy positions, and future.
Join Make Oakland Better Now! and SPUR for a discussion on Oakland’s budget – the process, the costs, and the economic priorities shaping our city. Our panel will include Budget Director Sara Schlenk, Budget Advisory Chair (and MOBN board member) Ed Gerber, a representative from Open Oakland, and others.
