The Oakland Peace Center is a community of artists, activists, cultural workers, educators and non-profits collaborating to bring about a city of hope, justice, nonviolence and compassion.
The Oakland Peace Center provides needed space, hosts collaborative events and trainings, and creates a network of emotional and spiritual support for the 25+ organizations who partner in its work. These organizations pursue access, opportunity, justice, and inner peace throughout the Bay Area each in their own way. They can turn to the Oakland Peace Center to fortify and amplify these efforts through solidarity and cross-pollination. The OPC inspires these organizations to participate in a vision larger than that of any individual or member organization.
20167 has been intense but has reminded us of why we need to come together right now.
We have hosted resource fairs to connect people with organizations working to stand for Muslim and immigrant and LGBTQ and women's and civil rights, for people to support the Movement for Black Lives, to support the environment and low-wage workers and to end bullying. Over 1,600 people have come through our doors since the election specifically to get more connected to our partners' work for healing, peace, and justice. We and our partners have also been training people to do nonviolent movement building and organizing work. To get a glimpse of what our network is up to, please watch this video.
Donate to help support this big leap for our small but mighty organization.
Violence Ends with Us. Peace Begins with You.
