The Public Ethics Commission's report, Race for Power: How Money in Oakland Politics Creates and Perpetuates Disparities Across Income and Race, evaluates outcomes from Oakland’s existing public financing program and overall campaign finance system, articulates the ways in which some Oaklanders lack political power, explores current trends and best practices across jurisdictions and subject-matter fields, and recommends a new approach for Oakland to expand and diversify participation and influence in the campaign process.
