For two decades, I’ve been an advocate for working people, leading coalitions in the passage of policies in Oakland to create the building blocks for regional, state, and national change, including:
- Raising Oakland’s minimum wage with paid sick leave by passing Measure FF which won with 82% voter support.
- Securing a ground-breaking good jobs policy for the redevelopment of the former Oakland Army Base, which is putting Oaklanders to work, earning over $12.5 million in wages.
- Partnering with neighborhood and environmental groups on a Port of Oakland Clean Trucks Program to reduce diesel emissions and create healthier neighborhoods.
I am honored that my organizational leadership and professional work have been featured in the media; click here for Nikki in the News.
