Steering Committee Members

The Steering Committee leads the work we are already engaged in — campaigning for single-payer healthcare, educating and communicating with members, hosting public events — and takes on much more, like securing housing for all, resisting ICE detentions, and joining labor struggles. This operating structure — lean, transparent, and deeply democratic — means we can support our growing membership to build power, win fights, and transform life for working people in the East Bay for years to come.
