Event description



Hope this finds you in good health and spirits.

Please feel inspired to reinvigorate Resilience in Impacted Men of violence.

How can you HELP?

You are invited to join us in our upcoming Men’s Conference, “Empowering Lives Building Resilience and 1st Annual “Unsung Heroes Award” Banquet Dinner that evening in the same location on the same date. The Theme of the Men's Conference is "EMPOWERING LIVES, BUILDING RESILIENCE": Have you been impacted by police violence or community violence, or unfairly arrested by this criminal justice system? This conference focus on empowering you - fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, and men - on how to recover from the tragedy, trauma, risks, and stress; and how to turn your “Pain to Purpose”.

Every Impacted Man has a story…. Sometimes it’s the wound that is unseen that hurt us the most. Your wounds can affect mood, thoughts, and behavior, yet these wounds often go unrecognized and unacknowledged.

During the conference, you will:

  • Participate in a specially designed Mental Health workshop to deepen your understanding of tragedy, trauma, risks, and stress on health

  • Participate in intimate conversations with leaders representing Impacted fathers, who have turned their “Pain to Purpose”.

  • Understand the protective conditions that can be implemented to reinvigorate the resilience you have within.

  • Learn how unrecognized and unacknowledged post-traumatic conditions can affect mood, thoughts, and behavior

  • Build a support base for men

  • Participate in an immersive experience of Oakland activism culture and traditions

  • Participate in a chess tournament thought-out the conference - Winner will be highlighted at the "Unsung Heroes Award Banquet Dinner
