"... we represent a broad coalition of the community, of people who are dedicated to working truly for racial, social, and economic justice.
And we are already organizing to work in our community to hold every single one of the elected officials accountable because we have a challenge in front of us. A very serious challenge.
And we are working in the areas of policing and public safety, economic justice, community and improvements, education and anti-gentrification efforts to keep Oakland’s shrinking black population in Oakland." -- Carroll Fife [http://www.oaklandalliance.org/2015/01/carroll-fife-at-special-concurrent.html]
