Oakland Local

Oakland Local is the independent, non-profit news resource for what’s happening in education, city government, food, innovative tech, arts & culture, youth & more in Oakland.  We are journalists, educators, women, people of color and entrepreneurs funded by Google, the Fund for Ethics and Excellence in Journalism, the Fund for Investigative Journalism,  the Investigative News Network, the California Endowment Foundation, and many local small donors--like you.

We are the authentic voices of Oakland. Our contributors live across the city and range in age from 17-75. We publish diverse viewpoints from a wide range of people drawn together by their passion to reflect the real Oakland and tell the stories that should be told and are not. We publish community voices and professional reporters and we love youth and beginners as well as OGs and experienced folks.

We are pro-small and local business. We're all about shopping locally and helping merchants, artisans and small business people use our site and our classes and programs to connect to community who will buy from their and keep and bring money and jobs into the community. We celebrate Oakland innovators, workers, and business folks, because they are us.

Empower community voices with your support of our events, marketing and reporters.
