More Info

A full calendar of alternative, grassroots events is at PeoplesClimateCalendar.org. Groups may submit their events there to be listed. There is also a Housing page, if anyone would like to offer visiting activists a sofa or bed for a night or two.

"After-School Supper Is the Latest Casualty of Oakland Unified Budget Cuts," News Blog, 8/31
