Description

Take Back Our Streets - FREE Summer Series

Pain, trauma and senseless violence plague some of the most vulnerable communities across Oakland. Take Back Our Streets is a united effort to implement direct street actions, conflict resolution training and use street canvassing to help address inter-communal violence and public safety in Black and Brown communities. We are the solution to addressing problems from within.
