Alameda County Budget 101 Training


📊 You’re invited to the annual Alameda County Budget 101 Training presented by Restore Oakland, American Friends Service Committee & the Care First Community Coalition

When: Saturday June 18th, 11am-12:30pm PST

💻 This will be a zoom webinar, registration is required.

🔮 In this training, we will provide you with fundamental tools to demystify the county budget process and who the decisionmakers are. You’ll also learn about Care First Community Coalition‘s budget demands that are being made by incarcerated folks, their loved ones, service providers, and advocates.

🕊 That is a budget which divests from incarceration, and invests in mental health and housing resources that truly make our community safe.

Our goal is to empower Alameda County residents to make a Care First budget a reality.

Community Building Circles


We hold community building circles every Wednesday, rain or shine! This is a generative space where we practice what it means to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the land. All are invited.

Our in-person circles are held in a restorative justice format by Jo Bauen, Ray Evans, and Kari Malkki. We ask folks to provide proof of vaccination and wear masks to attend.

For our August circle theme we will wonder about existence on the planet.

  • Why are we here? What is this place called home?
  • What is wilderness and who are we in relation to it?
  • What is human nature?

We won’t answer all our questions but will honor the unknowns.

Healing Justice Campaigns


Healing Justice is a reminder to social movements that the concept of action should be expanded to support the self-determination, interdependence, resilience & resistance of those most impacted by oppression.

Join our weekly community building circles! We believe that real change happens in circle, and we want to see that grow. This will be open to all with a special outreach to formerly incarcerated and system impacted individuals.
