Day laborers attend Oakland ID Inauguration!
Victor, a member of our Oakland Workers’ Collective, has been eagerly waiting to get his Oakland ID (pictured below). He, along with other clients and staff of Street Level, attended the Oakland ID Inauguration today where the ribbon cutting ceremony took place. Street Level is one of many other grassroots organizations that advocated for the expedient implementation of the City ID. Over the last few years, our community and staff have fought for the passing and implementing of the Oakland ID and talked to reporters from KTVU, Oakland North, and Univision about this issue (click on links to view articles). Thanks to all the city officials, organizations, and community members who pushed for this resource, Oakland residents–including immigrants–will have access to a government issued identification with a debit card function, helping them integrate into Oakland’s financial and civic community.
