Urban Restoration presents a mural art walk and cleans up!
Come help keep our city beautiful and clean. We will be picking up moop all while seeing the beautiful new murals that have blossomed in Downtown Oakland from the Black Lives Matter protests. This is for the community, by the community.
What is MOOP?
MOOP is an acronym which stands for “Matter Out Of Place.” Our goal is to remove moop off our city streets and put them in the right place!
