What if every city voter, regardless of income, could donate in local elections? This is the new reality in Oakland, thanks to the passage of Measure W in the November 2022 election. Modeled after a Seattle-based initiative, Measure W established a public campaign finance program in Oakland known as Democracy Dollars. Starting with the 2024 election, every Oakland resident over the age of 18 will be offered $100, in the form of four $25 vouchers, to donate to their preferred local candidates. Join us for a panel discussion exploring the origins of Democracy Dollars and its goal to equitably involve all Oakland residents in the political process.
