Kaplan for Oakland | Progressive, Effective Leadership

It is my incredible honor to continue my service as Oakland’s Vice-Mayor as we work together through this pandemic and for greater health and equity for our communities.

I have been doing important work on COVID-19 vaccination access, I have been restoring funding for vital public services including the fire department and community violence prevention and civilian responders (MACRO), and we have worked to reduce pollution from our hardest-hit communities, including obtaining funding for zero emission trucks.

During my campaign for re-election last year, special interests spent record-breaking amounts of money against me in order to keep me from doing the work for the people that I promised to do and have continued to do.

An amazing group of my friends and supporters are co-hosting an event on June 16 where I will have the opportunity to share about what is going on in Oakland. 

Please consider making a contribution and joining us on Wednesday June 16 at 5:30 PM.

    Rebecca is a compassionate, experienced, and hard-working individual. During this moment of crisis, she is exactly who we need on the Council.

    Read more about her recent accomplishments.

    Thank you so much to our supporters, volunteers, and the voters of Oakland — we are honored to have won re-election!  NEWS.

    And—Join us together with Congresswoman Barbara Lee and other Host Committee members for our post-election celebration and Hannukah party!   Sign up HERE.

    Thursday, December 3rd, for a virtual gathering, 5:30-6:30pm.
