Nov 5 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Dear neighbors and allies, The fight for the maximum amount of 100% affordable housing on the E12th St. parcel continues. In the past month, we filed a legal appeal with the city, raised $2k for filing fees, submitted a Public Ethics Complaint against a council member for their conflict of interest, and successfully pressured the council to move the E12th land sale discussion from a closed meeting, to a public session. Next week, the Oakland City Council will make the final decision on whether to approve our appeal. If we … Continued

KPFA Documentary Night Presents: The Great White Hoax @ New Parkway Theater
Join us election night, Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 7pm for KPFA’s Documentary Night Screening of: The Great White Hoax by Tim Wise. In The Great White Hoax, anti-racist educator Tim Wise explores how American political leaders have scapegoated people of color to divide working class voters and consolidate power. Taking from Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign it expands its scope to make sense of what’s happening today as we gear up for 2020 and how Trump’s xenophobic rhetoric fits a pattern of racism that goes back centuries. After-film discussion led by Adrienne … Continued

Socialist Night School: The Case for Open Borders @ East Bay Community Space
Nov 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Policies that aim to restrict immigration flows rarely achieve their intended result. Instead, … Continued
