A Force for Change.
We need a vision for Oakland that maintains our community’s character by providing equally and equitably for every neighborhood in our great City. We need Community-rooted and Community-accountable solutions across race, class, gender, and creed to create One Oakland that is prosperous, safe, clean and works for all of us. Cat is committed to building the movement that will transform Oakland into a city that is guided by the voices of those who have created our diverse, unique culture. She wants to fulfill the promise of a City of rich beauty, powerful history, and dynamic culture for all its People. You can help! This is how we bring Oaklanders back together.

We have developed our Platform in partnership with the people of Oakland, building on and sustaining the work of those who cannot purchase representation in the halls of power.
Housing And Dignity for All
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing described the homelessness crisis in our city as "systemic cruelty”. We have a moral obligation to immediately provide safe, dignified shelter for ALL while we work to build truly affordable housing for our working and middle class families.
Create AN ECONOMY THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE
Oaklanders need good paying jobs close to home. We need to grow our local economy by investing in our jobs training programs, supporting cooperative efforts with business, recruiting progressive companies to base in Oakland, and encouraging union jobs that pay true living wages.
21st Century solutions for public safety
If numerous studies showcase the critical importance of Early Childhood Development Programs to create safer communities and put our children on a lifetime path to success, why is our City spending more money on overtime pay for police officers than it does on Early Childhood Development?
Quality Education for All
For Oakland to truly thrive, we must prioritize our children. This means we must improve services for families, ensure adequate nutrition for ALL children, provide quality, after school programs, job training opportunities, and partner with our schools and teachers to ensure they have the resources, including affordable housing, that they need to help our children succeed.
Sanctuary for All
We will ensure that Oakland is truly a Sanctuary City by both providing an unwavering commitment to policy that prevents any collusion between local law enforcement and federal agencies, and working closely with the most impacted communities to create and strengthen rapid response networks, “know-your-rights” trainings, and other community safety mechanisms.
Environmental Justice and Public Health
Environmental justice and public health are linked not only to the fight for clean air, water, and soil, but also to the quality of our homes and our neighborhoods, our access to fresh, nutritious food, the quality of our public schools, and the safety of our streets. A healthy environment also means attending to the culture of fear that many of our residents share, especially our undocumented residents and those in our immigrant communities.
"As we wrestle across this country with issues regarding the rebuilding and restructuring our cities, it is crucial that we find People for public office who are compassionate and passionate. Persons who have demonstrated the willingness to put the well-being of our communities ahead of personal agendas. it is for this reason that I am pleased to support Cat Brooks for Mayor of Oakland. I believe that Cat will lead Oakland with the kind of visionary and progressive leadership the City continues to cry for."
