Soul of the City
Soul of the City places the well-being of Oakland directly in the hands of the community. We honor the important role that each person plays in creating a vibrant and thriving city.
Soul of the City believes that shovels and paintbrushes, ballots and marches are all important tools for achieving change in Oakland. Currently we:
- Build the emerging leadership of young adults through Reclaim to Future and political education events to guarantee a socially just and sustainable Oakland.
- Mobilize voters of color to be directly involved in elections and policies that impact their lives.
- Promote community solutions through community service projects including Throw Down for the Town, our annual city-wide Service Festival.
- Are exploring how worker-owned businesses and alternative economies could promote prosperity in Oakland.
