Dear Friend,

The Summer of Non-Violence continues tomorrow with "Get This Work," a free afternoon
concert and Youth Jobs & Opportunities Fair in downtown Oakland. This is the
follow-up to June 1's hugely successful "Silence the Violence Day."

::: TOMORROW: GET THIS WORK :::

Tomorrow is a big day for Let's Get Free and for Oakland's young people. I want to
personally invite you to come and ask you to please bring any young people that you
know.

What exactly is happening? Well, we all know that Oakland is short on opportunities
for young people — whether it's opportunities to have fun or opportunities to work.
Saturday, we start to turn that around.

WHAT
"Get This Work": Free Concert and Youth Jobs & Opportunities Fair
WHEN
TOMORROW!!!
Saturday, June 17 -- Noon - 3 pm
WHERE
Frank Ogawa Plaza
14th Street & Broadway (Downtown Oakland)
ON STAGE
Dirty Mack'n Tribe, J. Stalin, Tha Faculty, Animaniakz Dance Crew,
Mr. Pack, DJ Aebl Dee, Colored Ink, Fiyawata, Deelah, Nar,
Full Tyme Hustlers/MOB

Onstage, some of Oakland's top local hip-hop artists will be performing with no
ticket price or cover charge — a rare opportunity for cash-strapped youth to see
some live music. Hundreds of young people will get a chance to hang out, hear some
music and have some fun. Right next to the stage, they will get to talk to
businesses and community programs that are looking to give young people an
opportunity to work or get involved. The Jobs & Opportunities Fair will feature at
least twenty booths, giving young people a variety of options and opportunities.
