2019 COMMUNITY HERO HONOREES


Oakland Teachers and Oakland Education Association

Keith Brown, President

Education is the foundation of economic justice. Through their historic strike, Oakland teachers won better living and working conditions for educators through wage increases, more reasonable class sizes, and increased support for immigrant students, foster youth, and special education students, giving young people a stronger foundation for a future of economic opportunity and security.


Responsible Business Lending Coalition and California Partners

The RBLC, working closely with partners such as California Association For Micro-Enterprise Opportunity (CAMEO) and CDC Small Business Finance, made history last year by successfully leading efforts to enact the nation’s first law (SB 1235) that provides truth-in-lending for small-business borrowing. The new law gives small business owners the information they need to understand the confusing world of business financing.



Orson Aguilar, President of Greenlining Institute

Under Orson's leadership, the Greenlining Institute has been instrumental in keeping nonprofits in Oakland, fighting against gentrification and displacement, protecting low-income consumers from predatory lending, and fighting for the economic well-being of communities of color throughout the state.
