First Fridays in Oakland

First Fridays in Oakland 

5pm 7th and Broadway

in front of the main police station

We will read the names of those killed by police in Northern California. 

We remember. Please join us. 

Stand against systemic racism and violence 
that cost us the lives of too many young black and brown men and women
causing long-lasting, detrimental affects on all our communities. 

The Interfaith Tent for Justice 
grieves with all victims of violence and their families. Whether victims of drone attacks, bombings, torture, oppression, gang shootings, domestic violence, rape culture, systemic racism, or increased violence from police and security forces, we stand with you. No one is immune to the effects of violence, including those who are involved in the systems that use violence as a means of social control. 

We will continue to work for justice for all, to the best of our abilities. 

A program called Operation Ceasefire works to stop gang violence. This isn't enough. Police must be held accountable for extrajudicial killings and violence. This is why we call for 100% Ceasefire. A long term goal, but one worth working toward.
