We’re proud to say that the high-level goals of the plan were unequivocally met and advanced. We repealed the Inclusionary Zoning ban at the legislature. We built a strong youth organizing base. We’ve led Climate Justice actions, raised awareness of air toxics, and assembled the Transportation Justice Alliance to fight for regional transit priorities. Now, it’s time to look ahead.

This year, OPAL is engaged in a process of visioning our next five years… and we want your help!
