About the Event
Oakland League members meet every spring to elect new leaders, approve annual budget, and set priorities for the coming year. This in-person meeting will be at a spacious outdoor community venue, iconic center of The Unity Council (learn more here).
Immediately following the business meeting, hear Councilmember Caroll Fife and Central Legal de la Raza Executive Director Monique Berlanga in conversation about the changes in their West Oakland and Fruitvale communities.
In the last 30 years Oakland's Latinx population doubled, the white population increased, the African American population decreased and the Asian population stayed the same. Fife and Berlanga will discuss today's issues from gentrification, economic development challenges, pandemic impact to how newcomers are engaged in community and in voting.
Lunch will be provided ($10 donation at the door is appreciated.) Hybrid option in development. Please RSVP at this link to receive detailed travel information and guest speaker biographies. Background documents for the business meeting are at this link.
