Our 28th Annual All-City Luncheon was held April 11th at the Oakland City Center Marriott Hotel!
Our keynote speaker was Rosie Rios, 43rd US Treasurer. Our 2019 Making Democracy Award Winners were Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS) and New Voices Are Rising. Ms. Rios, who as US Treasurer was instrumental in leading the effort to have a woman’s face on US currency (Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill), was raised in Northern California and spent time working here in the Bay Area.

LWVO's primary fundraiser is a popular event which brings together Oakland’s business, education, labor, political and civic leaders in support of our city and the League’s activities. For more pictures of the wonderful event, see photographer Shelly Hamalian's site here.
Proceeds from this event make possible the production of our Oakland Easy Voter Guide, Who Represents Oakland and the videos that have been so effective in educating Oakland voters. We will be providing election information for the Presidential and local elections, helping to make the census count fair and complete, supporting reform of Proposition 13 to improve California’s education system, and, last but not least, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters. Our goal is to make sure "Oakland Votes Informed!"
