Mission Statement

PUEBLO is a multi-issue community organization located at 3528 Foothill Boulevard, Oakland, CA 94601. Its mission is to advocate for the needs of low-income residents of Oakland, most of them people of color, by grassroots organizing, offering leadership training and initiating policy reform.

Description

PUEBLO has won reforms in the areas of public health, education, living wage, environmental justice and youth development, as well as public safety. Among its most notable achievements, PUEBLO initiated the Alameda County Lead-Poisoning Prevention Program that offers free lead screening to low-income cities in Alameda County. That program became a national model, and one of our members is the community representative who sits of the Board that oversees its operation.
