Come join our socially distanced rally in Oakland to learn more about Yes on Prop 16 and hear from all manner of local community leaders from students, to elected officials, faith leaders, local candidates, and more!

Please follow safety guidelines by wearing a mask. Personal protective wear will also be provided, and social distancing will be supported with marked spaces and friendly reminders between speakers.

Safety is our first goal, so please stay home if you or someone you live with is immunocompromised or you're feeling under the weather and tune into our digital events.
