Oakland United, convened by EBASE, is a long-standing coalition of Oakland residents, workers, labor unions, community organizations, youth & faith groups that has been engaged in advocacy around Coliseum development proposals since 2015. Our coalition believes that fair development on public land should include good jobs for local residents, significant affordable housing and displacement protections, environmental impact measures and clean energy infrastructure, investments in our existing neighborhoods and youth, community enforcement, and other community needs.
Our coalition will negotiate with the African American Sports & Entertainment Group (AASEG), a developer that has proposed a development on the Coliseum site that has an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement with the City of Oakland, to create a comprehensive Community Benefits Agreement for the development. Through this agreement, this project could improve the lives of Oakland residents by providing meaningful economic opportunities, housing stability, and environmental safeguards.
