2020 Oakland Progressives Party

Join Tracey Corder and Calvin Williams as they emcee Oakland Rising’s virtual OAKLAND PROGRESSIVES PARTY with musical performance from Kev Choice. Hear from:

  • adrienne maree brown 
  • Cat Brooks 
  • Lateefah Simon 
  • Nikki Bas 
  • Jahmese Myres
  • Dominique Gipson

and others as we say farewell and pay tribute to Jessamyn Sabbag after 12 years of visionary leadership. We’ll spend the hour honoring her and debriefing the election results. Be in community with the Town’s social justice organizers, political leaders and community members as we celebrate and reflect. 

Help raise community support to bolster our political and electoral power-building work to win community-solutions, and develop and elect leaders who champion racial, economic & environmental justice. See below for how you can sponsor/co-host.
