Mission

EBASE advances economic, racial and social justice by building a just economy in the East Bay based on good jobs and healthy communities. We address the root causes of economic injustice by developing strategic alliances among community, faith, and labor to build power and create change with low-income workers and communities of color.

Vision

EBASE imagines a vibrant East Bay where good jobs, healthy communities, and engaged residents are the norm. In this decade, EBASE will contribute to transforming the economy by winning campaigns that help to rebuild an inclusive middle class.

In our vision, barriers based on race and class will not exclude segments of society from shared prosperity. Today’s neighborhoods of color with the highest rates of poverty and unemployment will achieve real pathways into jobs that will sustain their families. Immigrants will enjoy basic human rights and not be subject to second class status and exploitation. Those who live in the East Bay can find a good job here, while those who work in the East Bay can afford to live here.
