The Octopus Literary Salon | 2101 Webster St, Oakland, CA


In 2015, a small group of friends came together one evening over a novel idea: to have a fancy “fundraiser” where the goal was to raise awareness instead of money. They listened to three powerful stories and promised to advocate for these issues by standing up to hate, ignorance, and misinformation.

Come join them on January 26th as they listen to three new personal accounts on transgender rights, black lives, and Mexican immigration, issues most affected by the changing administration. No PowerPoints. No scripts. Just storytelling on a mission.

This event is free and open to the public, however space is limited, and ticketing is strictly enforced. Please check back a week before the event for tickets. This is a storytelling gala. Please dress nicely. Standing-room only. Food, wine, and beer will be available for purchase.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
