Event Details

October 22nd is the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality and the Take Bake Oakland Coalition and the Justice Reinvestment Coalition is collaborating to put on a Freedom Fest to end and amplify the entangled state violence of police terror, criminalization, and imprisonment.

Expect an afternoon of community workshops, music, cultural performances and a resource fair.

The trauma and oppression our black, brown, immigrant, queer, trans, gender non-conforming, poor, and disabled communities face with police terror and imprisonment go hand in hand.
