2023 Oakland Progressives Party + Townie  Awards

Our hearts are full of gratitude to all the attendees at the Oakland Progressives Party + Townie Awards on July 13, 2023! The room was FULL of beautiful people from all across Oakland. With all of our wonderful volunteers, staff, sponsors, co-hosts, Townies, and attendees like you – OPP was such a success and an amazing night full of love, collective power, and hope! From our wonderful Emcee and DJ Davey D to Chef Chris Evan’s tasty sliders, this evening was definitely one for the books.
