We are so grateful to have been able to host a workshop by the People's Community Medics for a second time this past week. This time around they empowered us to treat victims of tear gas and blunt force trauma, two very common injuries for front line resistance to state violence.

There is so much community-based knowledge to tap into, that is why CDP is committed to hosting weekly community conversation hours (CCH) before our strategy meetings. These CCH very closely model the neighborhood assemblies outlined in our initiative that creates participatory budgeting for the entire city's budget in Oakland. With a regular space for all people to meet and gather we can share and learn from one another. As an informed population, we can begin to meet the needs within our own and other's communities.
Do you have something you would like to share with the community? Or is there something you are curious to learn about? Contact us on the web or check out one of our upcoming events listed below!
