Tomorrow, as part of the national call to action to #ReclaimMLK, we’re taking it to the streets and facilitating a direct action to engage the people of Oakland in conversations about their vision for a racially just Oakland and what kind of city they want to live in.
Folks are realizing that in order to hold the government and police accountable to the people, we have to move from being passive spectators and individualized consumers to connecting with each other about our shared reality.
We’ll meet at Lake Merritt BART at 11am. There will be a short training and then we’ll break out into small groups and fan out to neighborhoods across Oakland to talk directly with Oakland residents. At 2 we’ll come back together to share our experiences. All are welcome – just come ready to chat it up!
You can also share the event on FB.
