African people in Oakland have been pushed out of their communities through gentrification and discriminatory police and imprisonment policies.

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement organizes white people under the leadership of the African-led Uhuru Movement to take a stand against the war on the black community that is nearly ignored by so-called white progressives.

Come out to hear from Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee (APSC) and the leader of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement. She is the author of Overturning the Culture of Violence, a book that takes a look at history from the perspective of African and oppressed peoples.

Get involved in the work to take a stand and challenge the attacks on the black community in our city and beyond. Support the Uhuru Movement that struggles to uplift the entire community through economic development and a struggle for social justice.
