Is Police Accountability Possible in Oakland?
July 28, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

The Justice Team and the Journey Towards Wholeness Anti-Racism Team join with Reverend Soto in inviting you to our first of several congregation-wide Zoom meetings about racial justice and policing. Representatives of the Coalition for Police Accountability will be in dialogue with us about their work on an upcoming ballot measure intended to correct the lack of independence and oversight power of the Police Commission. The live panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period.

You will need a Zoom link to join. Please register at Eventbrite. You will receive a confirmation, and Zoom access will be sent to your email the day of the event. For more info, contact Helen Duffy.

The Coalition is the community organization that created the Police Commission with Measure LL on the 2016 Oakland ballot. In the period ahead we will offer additional perspectives about how to confront systemic racism and change public safety in the future.
