We are excited to announce a brand new weekly CDP event, and everyone is invited! Join us THIS SUNDAY, March 8th to kick off an afternoon of meeting new friends, creating buzz for the people’s budget, taking pictures, and having fun in our beautiful city. Our weekly event is in three parts: we will engage in an outreach activity, followed by a recreational activity with new and old CDP friends, and then phone banking/email banking to connect with those who have shown interest in having a participatory budget in Oakland. The plan for this Sunday:
1-3 pm: Meet in front of Grand Lake Theater (3200 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA 94610). We will split off into teams to ask Oakland folks about their vision for an economically just Oakland, and what they would spend $1 million on for their neighborhood. Check out our Instagram for responses from our previous experiences!
3-4 pm: Soccer at Eastshore Park (between Grand Ave, Lakeshore Ave, and MacArthur Blvd) with food!
4-6 pm: Phone-banking/email-banking!
This will be a great time to bring friends, meet our new members/directors/volunteers, and meet up with people who hella love Oakland. Hope to see youthis Sunday at any of our activities! RSVP to communitydemocracyproject@
Stay tuned for more exciting events!
