2022 Legislation

In 2022, Councilmember Carroll Fife more than tripled the pieces of legislation she introduced in 2021, legislation aimed at Oakland’s most pressing issues of stable housing, economic justice and adequate public funding.

This work included resoundingly popular ballot measures for authorizing low-rent housing, expanding tenant protections, creating a progressive tax structure on big business, a funding source for affordable housing, and establishing public financing during elections.

It also included resolutions in support of establishing public banking in Oakland, capping allowable rent increases levied on tenants, studying the feasibility of housing 1000 individuals at the North Gateway Parcel, creating a farmers market in West Oakland, expanding opportunities for youth through the Summer Jobs program, and much more.

Carroll Fife is the Councilmember for Oakland’s District 3.

One of the founding members of Moms for Housing, Carroll has fought both in the halls of power and in the streets to protect the human right to housing.
