Allysa Victory’s goal is to lead Oakland with fiscal responsibility and people-centered economics to deliver quality public services and achieve a community that is housed, healthy and safe for all. Her own experience with overcoming homelessness and being a renter currently is what drives her progressive platform. Her platform stands out for incorporating the Black New Deal and the Green New Deal, centering equity and stopping racial disparity. If elected, Victory would require environmental and equity analysis plus a community benefits agreement for any and all large developments on public property or built with public funds. She currently serves as a Criminal Justice Staff Attorney at the ACLU of Northern California where she advocates for policy, takes part in civilian oversight of law enforcement and government transparency, and organizes prosecutor accountability roundtables with community-based coalitions. Born and raised in Oakland, Victory is the first in her family to graduate from college, and she holds a J.D. from UC Hastings College of the Law with a concentration in Government Law. Although Victory does not have direct experience in an elected role, she does have deep relationships with community organizations. As she builds her political power, we look forward to co-governing with Victory and holding her accountable to the policy platform she has laid out.
