Event Type Class/Workshop
Organizer/AuthorCat Brooks For Oakland
We are holding the event at OneFam Cafe to additionally highlight the tragic story being repeated too often across the City: Black people being pushed out of Oakland. Tony Coleman has been fighting to hold onto his 7th street spot. So we'll show him some love and hear how we can support before diving into the evening's topic.

This campaign is committed to building our platform in partnership with the community. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel. We want to uplift the amazing progressive grassroots work that is already happening.

Over the next few weeks, we will host People's Assemblies on everything from public safety to education. Together we will imagine an Oakland with housing security, true public safety, sanctuary for all, and create a plan to get us there.

Our first People’s Assembly will focus on the arts, and the displacement of the very artists who make Oakland the place where everybody wants to be. Join us to dream about an Oakland where we recognize the contributions of artists to our shared culture, and support them so they can remain in the community they helped to create. We invite artists and culture keepers to join us for this critical conversation where we will explore:

- How are artists being pushed out of Oakland?
- What do artists need to stay in Oakland?
- What should the City of Oakland be doing to keep art and artists in the Town?

Light refreshments provided.
