About the District 7 Councilmember

Treva Reid

Treva Reid is a community leader, advocate, and overcomer. She was raised in a family of educators, entrepreneurs, civil servants, and laborers with a deep respect for hard work. Treva’s passion to serve stems from growing up in a large civically engaged family where her great-grandmother’s political activism informed their values. As a young single mother in college working multiple jobs, she leveraged strengths from her upbringing to provide for her daughter and graduate from Hampton University.

Treva has a tenacious determination to overcome seemingly impossible situations. Her personal experience with childhood trauma, gun violence, domestic abuse, poverty, and housing instability motivates her passion to fight for justice and challenge unfair practices.

Beyond passion, Treva brings the leadership skills and policy experience necessary to protect and prioritize Oakland residents who have experienced poverty, disparities, and cycles of inequity.

As a Senior Field Representative for then Assemblymember (now State Senator) Nancy Skinner, Treva advocated for housing policies, gun violence prevention, job training programs, legislation for incarcerated and formerly-incarcerated individuals, and other critical efforts in support of her neighbors in East Oakland.

A lifelong Democrat, Treva serves as an Associate for Assembly District 18 on the Alameda County Democratic Central Committee and is an Emerge California Alumna. She is also a ministry leader at Shiloh Church in Oakland and engaged in numerous community partnerships.

Treva's heart is for East Oakland, and her experiences have fueled her fight to ensure residents gain the transformational power of a good job, as well as live in safe, clean neighborhoods with schools that offer quality education. At City Hall she will work tirelessly to end gun violence, ensure housing stability, build affordable housing, and increase career opportunities for all Oaklanders.
