Soil Not Oil Conference @ Online
Aug 14 all-day

The Biosafety Alliance/Soil Not Oil Coalition has been organizing conferences since 2011. Starting with the historic Justice Begins with Seeds Conference that supported GMO Labeling campaigns by educating community members about the environmental hazards of industrial agriculture that is highly fueled by the GMO industry. In 2015, we expanded our work through the Soil Not OilInternational Conference, in which we promote practical soil-based solutions to climate change by restoring ecosystems and expanding environmental justice by offering scholarships to diverse participants..

Our conference have featured international scientists, farmers, elected officials and environmental activists including: Dr. Vandana Shiva, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Andrew Kimbrell, Wenonah Hauter, Miguel Altieri, David Zuckerman, John D. Liu, Starhawk, John Jeavons, Tim LaSalle, Paul and Elizabeth Kaiser and hundreds more.

Soil Not Oil is an educational event in which attendees learn the root causes, effects and solutions towards creating climate stability. Highly recommended to students, educators, activists, farmers, scientists, investors, policy makers, health providers, families, urban planners and everyone else concerned with life on earth.

It’s not too late to submit proposals to present at the 6th Annual Soil Not Oil conference, or to volunteer, or even register for this year’s conference—this time to be held entirely online.  Soil Not Oil is an exciting educational event in which attendees learn about the root causes and effects of climate instability, as well as the solutions that contribute to climate stability.  Highly recommended for students, educators, activists, farmers, scientists, investors, policymakers, health providers, families, urban planners, and everyone else concerned with life on earth.  Each year’s conference has been well worth attending, with presenters from all over the globe.  This year promises to be no different, except that it’s going virtual.

The Soil Not Oil Coalition advocates for sustainable and regenerative management of soils while reducing dependency on fossil fuels.  It works to promote respect for soils worldwide, and to highlight how shifting agricultural practices is the key to combating climate change.  The Coalition promotes integrated action on sustainable agriculture and clean energy to ensure a safe and healthy planet for generations to come.

Dia De Madonnari: Berkeley Street Painting Festival
Aug 20 all-day
Dia De Madonnari is a street painting festival taking place August 20th-25th, 2020. We are searching for participants and help spreading the word.
Sign up to be a participant to receive free chalk pastels and potentially prize money!

The aim of the event is simple: Enhance community spirits during an unprecedentedly turbulent time through a vibrant celebration of the arts, while also lending support to local organizations, businesses, and artists. To achieve this, the event will work as follows:

1. Individuals or groups sign up to be an artist on our website. When signing up, artists are encouraged to write down a local organization close to their hearts, so that organization (plus ways to support/donate to it) can then be added to the description of their painting when it is uploaded online. To this end, an “artist” can also be a local organization (such as you) itself, signing up in the “group” category.

2. To respect social distancing guidelines, paintings will be created at a location chosen by the artist, and shared via our social medias to the general public. Complimentary chalk pastels are distributed to artists.

3. Paintings will be created following one of three themes, which were chosen based on current events and experiences: racial justice, connection, and environment. The art can be a credited reproduction or original. Artists behind the top three paintings in each category, as chosen by a to-be-announced panel of judges, will receive cash prizes, with the 1st place prize in each category being $200.

4. At the artist’s discretion, locations of paintings will be shared on an interactive map on our website so community members can take self-guided, socially-distanced tours of the paintings throughout and following the festival as they choose.

Like our FB to stay updated!

Support the event by sharing with any artists, community activists, or residents that you know!

The Future Climate: Conversation with Climate Leader Marquita Price @ Online
Aug 20 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
  Join the discussion 

Screen Shot 2020-08-03 at 4.10.41 PM

Join us for a candid conversation with climate leader Marquita Price of the East Oakland Collective.

As part of Greenbelt Alliance’s Future Climate Webinar Series we invite you to join us as we sit down with notable Bay Area climate leaders. In each 30 minute session you will have the opportunity to connect with these inspiring professionals, hear their stories, and get an inside look into the amazing work that they do on issues relating to climate adaptation planning, equity, community engagement and more.

This week our featured expert is Marquita “Keta” Price, Director of Urban and Regional Planning for The East Oakland Collective. Keta has a background in computers and technology, business processes, chemistry, math, and community organizing. She has formerly interned for the City of Oakland’s Department of Planning and Building and University of California, Berkeley’s College of Chemistry biochemistry lab. Keta previously worked part-time as the Constituent Liaison of City of Oakland Councilmember Abel Guillen, focusing on the immediate needs of the San Antonio and East Lake communities.

Inspired by the Black Panther Party and Marcus Garvey, Keta’s civic engagement is driven by her passion to develop an economic base for the Black residents of Oakland. Her early advocacy is rooted at Merritt College where she served as the Vice President of The Black Student Union, President of the Kem(istry) Club, President of the Associated Students of Merritt College, and served on the Student Trustees of the Peralta Community College School District. Keta’s goals were to restore the resilience of the student government planted by Chairman Bobby Seale and other former Black Panthers, which focused on leveraging the institution’s resources to address the social justice issues students face in their community prohibiting them to thrive in life and academics. Keta transitioned from student advocacy to neighborhood community organizing focused on racial and economic justice. Marquita Price has an Associate in Science degree in Mathematics and Natural Science from Merritt College.

Intro to DSA @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
Aug 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Democratic Socialist politicians like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib are raising the expectations of millions of people across the United States and bringing them into a political awakening. The membership of DSA, the largest socialist organization in the United States, is rapidly growing by the thousands. Millions of everyday people are calling for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, universal rent control, and more.

But what is democratic socialism? What does it mean to be a member of DSA? And how do socialists look at the crises of police brutality, economic recession, and COVID-19?

Let’s talk about it.

This event will be held on Zoom! Join here:

2020 Virtual March on Washington: A 2 Day Digital Event for Racial Justice & Civil Rights

For generations, African Americans in this country have faced an anti-Black pandemic. From the unjust killings of innocent African Americans to the disproportionate impact of a global health pandemic, Black people have been getting attacked on all fronts. This moment has exposed the inequities embedded in the underlying fabric of our nation.

The NAACP will be holding a 2020 Virtual March on Washington on August 28th, 2020,
the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech and the now late Congressman John Lewis declared, “We want our freedom and we want it now!”

The NAACP will lead this virtual march alongside civil rights leaders, activists, and families
of those who died at the hands of law enforcement, to call for police accountability reform and mobilize voters ahead of the November elections. This virtual march will be in partnership with the socially distant, in-person march planned for those in the D.C. area.

As thousands virtually march on Washington to restore and recommit to the dream, this one
of a kind event will set forth a bold new Black agenda. The NAACP will also execute a robust
civic engagement effort with multiple levers of change, including registering participants to vote and encouraging them to participate in the Census.

This virtual grassroots mobilization will drive the movement from protest to policy to power.

Press Release: https://www.naacp.org/latest/naacp-announces-virtual-march-washington-channel-momentum-police-accountability-voter-mobilizatio/
____________________________________________________________

A series of virtual and in-person programming will take place on the following dates:

THE CALL: Thursday, August 27, 5 PM – 7 PM PT (8 PM -10 PM ET): There will be virtual programming carried on television networks and key social media platforms, including musical performances, remarks from young activists and emerging organizations, and other entertainment.

THE MARCH: Friday, August 28, 8 AM – noon PT (11 AM – 3 PM ET): There will be a Virtual March on Washington, streamed across key social media platforms and television networks. Led by Martin Luther King III, and the families of Black people who have died at the hands of police officers, thousands will virtually March on Washington to restore and recommit to the dream Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. defined in 1963. The virtual march will be in partnership with the socially distant, in-person march for those in the D.C. area.

THE CHARGE: Friday, August 28, 6 PM – 8 PM PT (9 PM – 11 PM ET): The event will conclude with a night of virtual programming, including a major keynote address and musical performances by award-winning artists.

Virtual Event During COVID-19

In light of COVID-19 risks and the fact that Blacks and other people of color have been disproportionately impacted because of systemic health disparities highlighted during this pandemic, the NAACP has committed to leading this event virtually.

Socialist Night School: Eco-Socialist Principles @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
Sep 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Zoom Meeting

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84693488061?pwd=M2t3S0dzdkhwN01oZm1hcFpHZS91UT09

In 2018 the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released an alarming report, stating that the world needed to steeply cut its carbon emissions and make radical changes in order to limit the planet’s temperature from rising to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. If that goal wasn’t met, the report predicted a horrifying increase in suffering for almost all life and ecological collapses.

In America, this report was met on the political Left by sustained calls for the abolition of capitalist exploitation of people and the planet. The rationale was that capitalism’s imperative for endless economic growth required massive amounts of energy, the vast majority of which is still produced through fossil fuels. Some of the specific responses were reinvigorated support for anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist struggles by Indigenous peoples, surges in attendance at climate strikes, and great support for proposals like the Green New Deal by elected officials.

East Bay DSA will explore this theme in a Socialist Night School mini-series, co-organized with our Green New Deal Committee. These 3 events will explore what it means to be an ecosocialist, the Red Deal and Indigenous struggle, and how to fight for a Green New Deal after Bernie.

In this first Night School, we’ll get an introduction to ecosocialism, its history, and how we can organize as ecosocialists today from the local to the national and international levels. Our readings will cover a broad swath of socialist history, and we’ll get started with 2 speakers:

Becca Miller has been a member of Boston DSA for two years and is a core member of the Take Back the Grid energy democracy campaign. She recently started her second term on DSA’s nationwide ecosocialism working group steering committee, where she’s been working on a new member onboarding process. Becca works as a campaign manager to increase state funding for a program that helps SNAP recipients afford more fruits and vegetables from local farmers.

Benny Zank is a member of the East Bay DSA Steering Committee and has previously served as co-chair of the chapter’s Green New Deal committee. He has organized as an ecosocialist for several years building strong coalitions with other organizations in the Bay Area and works professionally on addressing environmental issues, like supporting the California Energy Code. Follow him @bread_by_benny.

 

Priority Readings:

DSA Ecosocialist Working Group Principles

Care and Repair: Left Politics in the Age of Climate Change

 

Recommended Readings:

Karl Marx on the materials of production

An Ecosocialist Manifesto

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza or basement of Omni basement if raining
Nov 29 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Feed The People!

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA get together a little earlier than usual, at 2 PM (3 PM during DST) to share some food with each other and the community.  There should be a table, utensils/plates, meat and veggie entrees and whatnot, courtesy of the Kitchen Committee (such at he is), so just bring yourself, or something to share as well if you’d like.

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 3 PM at the Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway in the amphitheater. If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 3:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland. During the warmer months we meet at 4 PM at the plaza.

The OO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for more than five years! Our General Assembly is a participatory gathering of Oakland community members and beyond, where everyone who shows up is treated equally . Our Assembly and the process we have collectively cultivated strives to reach agreement while building community.

At the GA committees, caucuses, and loosely associated groups whose representatives come voluntarily report on past and future actions, with discussion. If you like, just come and hear all the organizing being done! Occupy Oakland encourages political activity that is decentralized and welcomes diverse voices and actions into the movement.

General Assembly Standard Agenda

  1. Welcome & Introductions
  2. Reports from Committees, Caucuses, & Independent Organizations
  3. Announcements
  4. (Optional) Discussion Topic
