The Social Justice Info Virtual Series: The Impact of Your Vote

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm | Cost: FREE


The Social Justice Info Series is a four-part series sponsored by the Undergraduate Criminology Program and the Center for Social Justice at HNU. This series is born out of a need to address the civil unrest experienced nationally, internationally and collectively by our students and others, in response to policing practices impacting communities of color.

The info series is intended to facilitate transformative learning and create a space to have real conversations that address current issues, and present opportunities for growth that can affect healthy, productive change within the criminal justice system and the community at large.

This final session will discuss the importance of voting. Guests will present issues that resonate with many communities and discuss how local issues and concerns are directly related to voting.

Guest Speakers:
Eli Ferran, JD, Former Oakland Deputy City Attorney
Black Women Organized for Political Action (BWOPA)

About Eli Ferran:
As a Deputy City Attorney with the Oakland City Attorney’s Office, Eli advised Oakland Police Department’s Alcohol Beverage Action Team (ABAT) and the City of Oakland’s Code Enforcement team, represented the City at administrative hearings for Cabaret (nightclub) permits, Extended Hours permits, and Deemed Approved Status for Motels due to nuisance activity. In his role as Deputy City Attorney, Eli also worked with community members to find solutions to sex trafficking, illegal gambling, and problem liquor stores in East Oakland.
