Born and raised in Oakland's District 4, Libby Schaaf has centered her life and career on building community, solving problems, and leading change in her hometown. Libby spent her youth volunteering through countless Girl Scout projects, at Children's Fairyland, and as a weekly Ranger Station Aide at Joaquin Miller Park. She graduated from Skyline High School. While an attorney in her late 20s, she co-founded the non-profit Oakland Cares, which organized and implemented hundreds of volunteer community improvement projects across the city. She found her calling was building community, so she left her legal career at Oakland's largest law firm to build and run the first centralized volunteer program for Oakland public schools at the Marcus Foster Institute.
As a Councilmember, she served on the Public Safety, Public Works, Life Enrichment, Education Partnership, City-Port Liason, and Rules and Legislation Committees of the Oakland City Council."
