COVID-19 and Beyond: Support Outdoor Black Cultural Zone Community
Black Cultural Zone: Free Meals, Produce and COVID-19 Safety Kits
Beginning June 15, 2020, we will have free and catered dinners for families, sourced from local Black and East Oakland Restaurants and Caterers. In addition, we distribute produce boxes and COVID 19 Kits for residents which will include masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer. We will also hand out other supplies and resources from local community members.
We will celebrate and uplift Black arts, culture, place, economy and life by:
-Highlighting local Black art & culture and Black artists
-Uplifting East Oakland culture and life
-Supporting our Black and local East Oakland economy by offering an outdoor venue for businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, makers and creatives
-Holding public land to support Black and legacy East Oakland residents including those who have been displaced or are stranded and unable to afford to return -- we must end the displacement of our people and build a thriving community.
We need our community more than ever to support our vision of freedom is grounded in our collective self-determination and the creation of political, social, cultural and economic liberation. These principles are informed by the ideals and platforms of our historic Black consciousness movements.
We invite you to EMBRACE our purpose, SUPPORT our collaborative, HONOR our values and INVEST in our vision.
