Community Safety

Mission


Based in Oakland’s Fruitvale District, Restore Oakland creates community-centered spaces where those harmed by racial inequities have opportunities to heal and create a shared vision for community safety and economic empowerment without relying on criminalization, punishment, extraction, and exclusion. We bring residents and organizations together to find humanity and healing in each other and cultivate participatory practices that advance freedom and belonging for all.

Healing Circles & Resources


We convene regular community building circles and trainings for residents to learn from each other and build shared interdependence.
