Back to School, Back to Sanctuary: Art Jam for Police-Free Schools in OUSD

Start: Friday, August 06, 2021 4:00 PM

End: Friday, August 06, 2021 7:00 PM

Come join the community for art at the lake. We are banding together to celebrate ourselves, but also to remember what’s important: thanks to the hard work of the Black Organizing Project and allies, the Oakland Unified School District has pledged to the George Floyd Resolution to keep officers out of Oakland public schools! This event is an example of the type of joy that can be shared when we focus on community healing, rather than over-policing.

There will be live poetry, guest speakers, art making, mural painting, music, care packages, community poetry booklets, a resource table, food, and above all community!

Students, parents, OUSD community members, and allies and supporters are welcome.

Come through to celebrate and help us remind OUSD of their commitment to the George Floyd Resolution.

Masks required, and six feet of social distancing will be enforced.

This event is sponsored by Bay Rising, Anti Police Terror Project , Black Organizing Project & Lower Bottom Playaz .
