Jobs and Housing Coalition proudly presents two featured pieces on Oakland.
Why Oakland discusses Oakland's remarkable people and businesses, and how it is increasingly becoming a destination for transportation, high tech industries, sustainable energy, and tourism. The city was named number five in the New York Times list of places to go in 2012.
Oakland Tech is Now creates a hand shake between the tech world and the great diversity that Oakland represents. The Jobs and Housing Coalition spring poll found that 70% of Oakland voters want to encourage tech to come to Oakland, and 78% want them to add diversity in their industry. It is our belief that tech needs Oakland and Oakland needs tech.
