Congratulations! You've scored a backstage pass to a unique fundraising event. On April 28, you're invited to a rare behind-the-scenes look at the place where Greenpeace's iconic actions to save the planet begin - our West Coast Warehouse!
In addition to enjoying delicious food, drinks and live entertainment, you'll experience the action side of Greenpeace that is signature to our efforts. Come climb into the Greenpeace airship gondola or hot air balloon basket for a memorable photo op, witness our unique climbing techniques, and get an up close and personal look at the boats that have made Greenpeace so effective on the high seas.
The Greenpeace Oakland Warehouse is more than the place where we store and maintain the equipment - from climbing gear and rigid inflatable boats to our airship and hot air balloon - that makes our iconic actions possible. It also serves as a growing and thriving community resource for activists who want to learn new skills, find more ways of using skills they already have or just plug in to Greenpeace and the broader environmental movement.
Come out to support our work and experience Greenpeace behind the scenes, at the place that provides an open, inclusive and empowering space for Greenpeace and our allies who are fighting for social and environmental justice.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to not only hear stories from Greenpeace activists who've worked around the globe, but to mingle with other supporters who help make our work possible.
