Civilian oversight of law enforcement workshop @ Kaiser Center
May 3 all-day

In partnership with the BART Office of the Independent Police Auditor and the Berkeley Police Review Commission, NACOLE is excited to announce that it will be holding one of the 2019 Regional Training and Networking events in the Bay Area. We hope that you will be able to join us in Oakland, California on May 3, 2019 at the Kaiser Center.

This event is geared toward a variety of audiences, including but not limited to community members, oversight practitioners, justice system stakeholders, and academics. It will seek to address many issues important to those who support, are interested in, or work in the field of civilian oversight of law enforcement. In particular, this training opportunity will take on topics such as civilian oversight of county jails, California’s new transparency laws, and information on the strengths and limitations of the different models of civilian oversight of law enforcement.

Please note that this event is open to all those wishing to attend. The registration fee for this event is $75 and includes training, continental breakfast, and lunch. Please note that no one will be turned away from this event for lack of funds. Registration fees will be waived or a donation accepted for those who find that paying the full registration fee would prohibit their ability to attend and who are not seeking CPO credits.

Register here.

Lunch will be provided along with a continental breakfast. We also invite all registered attendees to join us for a networking reception that will be held at the end of the day from 5:00pm – 10:00 pm at Oakland’s Lake Chalet on the waterfront. The reception will be an opportunity for attendees to further discuss the topics of the day and will feature DJ Davey D (Hard Knock Radio/Co-founder of the Bay Area Hip Hop Coalition) and live music with performances by a number of Bay Area standouts including Troy Lampkins (Bass), Sanford Barnett (Guitar), Alcide Marshall (Drums), Mic Blake (Vocals), Cat Brooks (Spoken Word), Sistah Imina (Spoken Word) and Chris Burger’s Alphabet Soup & Luv Phenomena.

Should you need to cancel your registration you may do so by April 26, 2019. Registration fees will be refunded minus a $15 processing fee. We will not be able to issue refunds under any circumstances after this date.

Sunrise Bay Area Organizing Training @ Laney Bistro

Sunrise is building a movement of young people to make climate change an urgent political priority and support the #GreenNewDeal to safeguard our generation’s future, create good jobs and transform our economy.

Check out more at Register here:

1. A deep dive into the Sunrise strategy, story, and structure that make up the movement’s 4-year plan (This is a 9 hour training, with breakfast and lunch provided. We ask people to attend the whole training to get the full experience, and it’s a ton of fun! We promise!)
2. Lots of time to have fun and get to know other young people from around the Bay Area.
3. Hands-on practice and skill building to strengthen your climate organizing skills.
4. Time to dig into the Sunrise Bay Area strategy for making the #GreenNewDeal a political priority and join a team/sub-committee to help make it happen.

It’s for YOU! Whether you’ve come to Sunrise Bay Area events and meetings before or whether you’re just finding out about Sunrise and the Green New Deal and are inspired to learn more, you are welcome!

This is a movement of young people – that means we have members of our hub who are high school students, college students, non-students, working young people, and more (generally between 16-35). People of all identities and backgrounds are welcomed and supported in this space. We are stronger when we join together, and we believe we need all of us to win. Join us.
