We look forward to new growth in this new year as we continue our efforts to make Oakland safe for all residents whether they walk, ride, scooter, or drive. In 2023 WOBO will focus on ways to expand our operations, including evaluating whether to become a staffed organization.
Though like many other small non-profits WOBO has been challenged since early 2020 by the changes the pandemic has imposed, our organization remains strong and relevant in Oakland. During this period we’ve mobilized volunteers to support the City Of Oakland’s safe Slow Streets initiative and produced multiple letters of support for grant applications for funding streetscape, bikeways, and e-bike projects. Right now we’re working to advance safety projects on Telegraph Avenue, the 14th Street corridor downtown, and the San Pablo corridor in North and West Oakland. We’re also forging partnerships with community groups in Deep East Oakland so residents there may enjoy the same quality of infrastructure as other parts of the city.
We want your support in 2023! Donors and volunteers are the heart and soul and wisdom of WOBO, and they represent the breadth of interest and commitment to make Oakland a better place to walk, bike, and live. The greater the number of supporters, the louder WOBO’s voice can be. Become a supporter of WOBO now, or renew your past contribution today!
