We live in the richest country in the history of the world, yet Richmond’s streets are riddled with potholes, unhoused people go hungry on the streets of our cities, and massive corporations profit off of oil, coal, and gas - including Chevron, right here in Richmond - while the forests of California burn and our cities are choked with smoke.
But there’s a different way. We can take on the fossil fuel and real estate companies and the politicians they’ve captured, but only if ordinary working-class people lead the way. And Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) is doing just that. They’ve already won taxes on Chevron, rent control, a $15 minimum wage, and a ban on coal storage in Richmond. Now, they’re running candidates Eduardo Martinez for Mayor and Jamin Pursell for City Council, endorsed by East Bay DSA, on a platform of reallocating police funding and making the city’s tax system more progressive.
