  • 8. Who We Are All of Us or None is a national organizing initiativestarted by formerly-incarcerated people to fight againstdiscrimination faced after release and to fight for the human rights of prisoners.We are determined to win full restoration of our civil and human rightsafter release from prison. Our goal is to build political powerin the communities most affected by mass incarceration and the growthof the Prison Industrial Complex. <br /> The emergence of All of Us or None is a concrete manifestationof the people most affected by an issue building a movement to combat it.Because the membership of All of Us or None is predominantly people of color,our emergence as a leading organization in the white-dominated criminal justice/anti-prisonmovement has a concrete impact on this movement. <br /> We’re committed to organizing formerly-incarcerated people to build amovement in Oakland, by working in coalition with other community groupsand organizing campaigns, such as Ban the Box and Clean Slate. We have beenvery visible in both campaigns in Oakland, doing public education about theissue through circulating petitions, public speakouts, and involving the communityin making demands of the Mayor and City government. We have expanded the originalSafer Oakland coalition by organizing other endorsers and activist sponsors.We are also focusing on implementation of other parts of the Plan, such asopposing immigration raids and the expansion of the Oakland police force.Because we are comprised of people who have been in prison, our voicein the criminal justice and anti-prison movement is essential and respected.Our active participation in the Oakland One Table and comprehensive reentryplanning, has been essential to highlighting the real needs of peoplecoming back to Oakland and Alameda County after prison. <br /> Beyond Oakland, we’re working in communities statewide and nationally.We use our coherent program as a tool to organize other criminal justiceadvocacy groups to support our campaigns. We are actively building a nationalnetwork of formerly-incarcerated activists and organizers, with a goal ofcreating consensus on some national campaigns that we can move forward collectively.<br />
