OUR PRIORITIES

RE-IMAGINING PUBLIC SAFETY

Hayward spends nearly half of its general fund on the police department, which is why we are:

  • Demanding budget changes that reinvest police funds back into chronically underfunded community services (ie.education, housing, social services, etc.)

  • Drafting policy initiatives that improve community safety without requiring a police or armed presence.

  • Organizing public calls to action and mobilizing our community to email elected representatives, make public comments, or show up to protests and other direct actions.


Organizing Organizers

What is power? How do people gain power? How does a community build solidarity? These are among the many questions that HayCoCoa is wrestling with as we grow activism in Hayward. Members meet every week to develop and participate in campaigns that empower and develop leaders across the Hayward community.
