While President Obama's fundraiser at Oakland's Fox Theater will be the marquee event during his East Bay fundraising swing Monday, the big financial players will be at the Piedmont home of Wayne Jordan and Quinn Delaney, who have quietly become two of California's major campaign donors.
A centerpiece of the couple's community work is the Akonadi Foundation in Oakland. Delaney, a lawyer and activist, founded the organization 12 years ago and serves as its president, while Jordan is its secretary-treasurer.
Fighting racism The foundation, which funds grassroots organizations, supports "a racial justice movement that can finally put an end to ... structural racism," which it defines on its website as "how history and culture have allowed the privileges associated with 'whiteness' and the disadvantages associated with 'color' to endure, adapt and accumulate over time."
Jordan and Delaney contribute most of the funding to the foundation and are not paid, according to federal tax documents.
The Akonadi Foundation has funded Californians United for a Responsible Budget, an Oakland group that fights prison expansion; the People's Grocery, which works to increase fresh food for residents in West Oakland; and Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice, an Oakland organization.

When hyper-bigots like these speak about wanting “a racial justice movement,” what they really want is THEIR turn to be the oppressors.
“Reparations” my fine. white ass; these rabid haters are in this for REVENGE, and THEN some.
Keep yer womenfolk locked up, and yer powder dry.
I did look it up, you know there is BS on the Internet and you can find whatever you want to back up your assertions. Hell, look at the BS Obama and his minions put out daily. I know a lot of conservative Asians, and they are far more conservative than whites (more than half of which put Obama in office).Sadly, many Asians look down on Blacks while looking at whites as equals, and aren't that likely to vote for Obama (but that's a racial divide, separate from conservatism). From your link:
"However, merely a few hundred Asians filled out the long questionnaire used in the national Edison-Mitofsky poll."
A few hundred peopled sampled, do not make for a meaningful sampling. Where did they sample them, outside Democrat union halls?
