Oakland Progressives Party

Join Tracey Corder and Calvin Williams as they emcee our virtual OAKLAND PROGRESSIVES PARTY. Hear from adrienne maree brown, Cat Brooks, Lateefah Simon, Nikki Bas, Jahmese Myres, Dominique Gipson and others as we say farewell and pay tribute to Jessamyn Sabbag after 12 years of visionary leadership. We’ll spend the hour honoring her and debriefing the election results. Be in community with the Town’s social justice organizers, political leaders and community members as we celebrate and reflect.
