WHY 14TH AND BROADWAY/OSCAR GRANT PLAZA?
A town plaza is a central meeting place for the people of the community. OG Plaza is our town center, our neutral meeting place for free speech and public dialouge. it was the epicenter of a bay area youth movement in the ’90s were hundreds of thousands of youth and their supporters closed down public schools to open freedom schools; halted the construction of new juvenile detention centers; interupted major corporations profit flow. it was the epicenter of the largest uprising in response to police terrorism in the history of the United States during the days of rage around oscar grant’s murder. it became the epicenter for occupy oakland.
