VIDEO: Art of Activism Award goes to....our Executive Director!
Oakland Rising's Executive Director, Esperanza Tervalon-Daumont was recently honored with the Robert Redford Center's Art of Activism Award. The Art of Activism is an Award and Event that "celebrates the work of extraordinary leaders." It is designed to provoke, inspire and engage people around the lives and work of the awardees. As part of the award, the good folks from Kontent Films made an amazing short documentary about Esperanza and her role as E.D. with Oakland Rising.
The Award Ceremony, which took place on November 11th at the Kabuki Theater in San Francisco, also featured the esteemed Mayor of Newark, NJ, Cory Booker, and CheckTheWeather.net co-founder (and Oakland resident) Ellen Choy.
