Hello everyone, join BYP100 Bay Area Chapter and the Children’s Defense Fund – California, along with Casey Family Programs and Kaiser Permanente, for Oakland 1st Weekend of Hope, a three-day event that will recognize the people and ideas that are working to stem the tide of violence that impacts the lives of children and families in Oakland.

The City of Oakland has a troubled history of violent crime. In 2012, Forbes magazine named it the third most dangerous U.S. city due to a crime rate of 1,683 per 100,000 residents. Despite these disturbing statistics, Oakland’s violent crime rate has recently begun to decline and there is reason to be hopeful that it will continue to through the tremendous efforts of community based organizations, advocates, the faith community, elected officials, and city and county agencies. Children and youth have been at the forefront of many of these efforts and the Weekend of Hope seeks to honor these youth and provide them with spaces for expression of their perspectives around ending violence and increasing hope.

Location: City Council Chambers are located on the 2nd floor of the building at 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza. The building is accessible via BART (14th Street) and there are several lots in the area.

March 26-29, 2014 at Laney College Theater and Student Resource Center 

Several community organizations are coordinating a Boys and Men of Color Resource Fair at Laney College from March 26th - 29th (4pm – 7pm  each night) alongside the premiere of PLACAS: The Most Dangerous Tattoo, written and developed by Paul S. Flores starring Ric Salinas of Culture Clash. We want to extend the opportunity for Oakland and Alameda County Boys and men of color (BMOC) to attend, participate and be uplifted in this work.
