When & Where
Oakland Natves Give Back
Established in 2008, Oakland Natives Give Back Fund exists today because of the vision of founders, Nyeisha DeWitt, Delicia (Dee Dee) Abdur-Rahim, and Tameka Raymond. All natives of Oakland, Nyeisha, Dee Dee, and Tameka have come together, representing three different organizations, to form the Oakland Natives Give Back, which has enabled them to show solidarity and oneness with the Oakland community. Their mission is to be an example to all Oakland natives by declaring that your commitment to the community in which you reside should not supersede your contribution to the community in which you were reared.
Currently, ONGB is fiscally sponsored by the OACP.
