Oakland, CA (City Of Oakland press release) – This Sunday, January 27, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris will formally launch her campaign for President of the United States at a rally in Frank Ogawa Plaza. The planned rally will result in street closures and access restrictions at Frank Ogawa Plaza over the weekend.
Please note that this is not a City event; it is privately organized and permitted by the candidate’s campaign. Any time a large, permitted public event that draws thousands of visitors to our public spaces is held in Oakland, the City’s role is to facilitate safe vehicle and pedestrian access on our City streets and public spaces, and to reduce the impacts associated with those crowds on our businesses and neighborhoods.
