Chris Hedges and Kshama Sawant Speak in Oakland!
NEW! Journalist Chris Hedges will be speaking with Kshama at the rally!

Richmond City Councillor and former Green Mayor, Gayle McLaughlin to speak alongside Kshama at this event!

Please join Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant at a rally in Oakland for her re-election campaign! Mark your calendar now!

From the streets of Baltimore to the growing movement for a $15 minimum wage, consistent protests are erupting against the endemic inequality and racism generated by Wall Street and their social system. With growing anger at the corporate policies of both main political parties, millions are looking for an alternative.

Since her election in 2013, Councilmember Sawant has led the opposition to the corporate agenda in the Pacific Northwest. An unapologetic fighter for working people, she refuses all corporate donations and accepts only the average worker's wage, giving the rest of her salary back to social movements. Despite being a city councilmember, she has risked arrest in order to stand with workers fighting for a living wage in Sea-Tac and environmentalists blockading coal trains. Her re-election will inspire more oppressed people to fight for our rights, and it will prove again that it is completely possible to elect candidates who reject corporate cash.

Kshama Sawant has inspired movements across the country. That is why corporations across the country are funding her opponents' campaigns. We in the Bay Area absolutely need to support her historic re-election. She cannot get re-elected without our active support. Mark your calendar, invite your friends, and join us at this rally and fundraiser!
