What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
Hi All, we are attempting to meet at City Hall for the first time in a long time! We won't have robust programming. More of a soft opening for people to gather. We're also trying to re-establish our presence in City Hall.
We only have a handful of projects which are active right now. Some people may be working on those or if you are new, we can give you an intro and chat a bit about your interests!
This is an in-person only event. We are committed to having virtual events in the future, but may not have a virtual option for every event.
Our Steering Committee meets monthly to discuss brigade strategy and make operational decisions. All are welcome to observe (https://openoakland.org/how-we-work).
Most of our Project leads will be in Steering Committee, so if you're looking to connect with a project, you may want to visit our Demo Night on the first Tues. each month instead.
SCHEDULE (times are approximate)
6:00 - 6:30 Quick tour of OpenOakland for new folks
6:30 - 6:45 Brigade check-in for everyone
6:45 - 8:30 Project working groups
