Occupy Oakland Focus Group for Young Organizers (18-30 years) @ The Holdout
Mar 8 @ 3:00 pm – Mar 8 @ 4:30 pm

Got thoughts on Occupy?

The Applied Research Center (publisher of Colorlines) is conducting focus groups with young organizers (between 18 to 30 years of age) to understand what motivates you to participate in the Occupy movement.

The focus group will run an hour and a half, from 3:00 to 4:30pm, this Thursday, 3/8 at The Holdout, 2313 San Pablo and 19th St., Oakland.

Participants will receive a $25 gift certificate from Arizmendi Pizza or AK Press (both are worker-owned coops!) for their time.

Contact millennials@arc.org if you have any questions.

Brooms Collective — Mission District Clean Up, 11:30 AM @ Mission District
May 5 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

In response to the May 1st vandalism of small businesses and private property in this largely working class neighborhood, we at the Brooms Collective are planning on gathering at the 16th Street Mission BART Station at 11:30 on Saturday morning to participate in a neighborhood clean-up and outreach action. Many people seem to believe that these deplorable actions were attributable to supporters of the Occupy Movement, and even Occupy Oakland in particular. Many of us in the Brooms Collective found this truly senseless destruction wholly out of step with our beliefs, political, social or otherwise, and we believe that many others feel the same way. An action such as this is the only way that we could even hope to repair the damage that was done in the name of a movement that many of us believe would never have condoned it in the first place.

Emergency Vigil for Victims of Gun Violence @ Oscar Grant Plaza Ampitheater
Dec 15 @ 2:00 am – 4:00 am

Today, there was a fatal shooting in Newtown, CT that cost us the lives of children and teachers. Fatality from gun violence is something the people of Oakland face on a daily basis. From Oakland to Newtown to Afghanistan, we will hold a space that says, “These lives matter, enough is enough. Violence is systemic, root to canopy, state to individual.”
Please join us at OGP, at 6pm this Friday, December 14, 2012. Wear black, bring your candles, your signs, your grief, your poetry, and music and thoughts. We will  have a silent candlelit funereal procession through the streets of Oakland in honor of those who have died this year as a result of gunfire and then hold vigil in the amphitheater, where people can stay, talk, and heal as a community.

Read the announcement from the City of Oakland City Administrator’s Weekly Report (April 25, 2014):

This committee was created by City Council action during the discussions earlier in the year about the Port Domain Awareness Center (DAC). The goal of the DAC is to improve readiness to prevent, respond to and recover from major emergencies in the Oakland region and ensure better multi-agency coordination across the larger San Francisco Bay Area.

We need to show up to these meetings and pressure the City to adopt a privacy policy that makes privacy a priority, not only “security” or administrative convenience.
