Who is Oakland Worker Fund?

Oakland Workers Fund is a mutual aid organization run by a small group of QTBIPOC young people who worked as food service workers in Oakland (Lisjan Ohlone land). Oakland Workers Fund was created in March 2020 out of an extreme urgency for mutual aid support for our community as the pandemic and shelter-in-place changed our lives and left many workers with no support or resources.

We specifically focus on supporting those most disproportionately affected by the pandemic: Black, Indigenous, brown, people of color, unhoused, undocumented, queer + trans, disabled, poor, elderly folks and single parents / families with many dependents, specifically those unable to receive government aid.

Since March 2020, have redistributed over $190,000 and counting. We have supported hundreds of unemployed, underemployed, underserved and displaced food service workers who are unable to receive help from the government. We provide assistance with other applications, food/ housing/testing resources, translation services and more for hundreds of community members.

We dream of continuing this crucial work well beyond the pandemic.
