Tonight! We will be joining adrienne maree brown, Cat Brooks, Kevin Choice, and Oakland Rising in virtual community to celebrate Jessamyn Sabbag's transition and look toward the future of our organizing.
No matter our background, we want those we love to stay healthy. As the pandemic worsens, we need to continue staying home, wearing a mask, and taking social distancing seriously. Together, we have the power to keep one another safe and get through this difficult time.
Join us to celebrate Jessamyn Sabbag's 12 years of brilliant, power-building leadership at Oakland Rising Action on December 2 at 5 pm.

With a powerhouse lineup of speakers including adrienne maree brown, Cat Brooks, and musical performance by Kev Choice, we can't wait to see you there.

As we move into the last month of the year, we are proud of how we have come together as voters this past month to create a shift in values nationwide. It's #OurTimeNow to keep elected officials accountable and move forward together.
No matter where we come from, what our color, or what we do for a living, most of us work hard for our families. But today, certain politicians and corporations continue to prioritize profit and exploit the workers that keep them alive, even in a pandemic.

Today, we need to join together in union to demand that people who work for a living can earn a good living, just like we won safer workplaces and civil rights in our past. By joining together, we make a future where we all get a fair return on our work.
It's more important than ever that we commit to shopping local on

Today and everyday, we honor above all else the Indigenous peoples who have for generations, and continue to, steward this land. We exist on unceded territory, with Indigenous peoples from various tribes living all around us.

Consistent acknowledgement, reparations, and the fight for land back must continue in order to reckon with the history of settler-colonialism.
Don't shop on Amazon this #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday #BlackOutBezos and demand Jeff Bezos treat his workers better, or lose our money!

Stop Jeff Bezos from exploiting California workers.
As COVID numbers rise all over the country and in the bay, we want to continue keeping our communities safe and being responsible, especially during the holiday season. Wear a mask, limit contact and outings, and stay at home as much as you can.
