The Oakland Peace Center provides needed space, hosts collaborative events and trainings, and creates a network of emotional and spiritual support for the 30+ organizations who partner in its work. These organizations pursue access, opportunity, justice, and inner peace throughout the Bay Area each in their own way. They can turn to the Oakland Peace Center to fortify and amplify these efforts through solidarity and cross-pollination. The OPC inspires these organizations to participate in a vision larger than that of any individual or member organization.
What We Do
We provide affordable space in the midst of the displacement crisis that particularly affects POC-led nonprofits.
We do cultural preservation programming through the arts.
We provide capacity-building support to small nonprofits.
We amplify the work of our partner organizations so our community can engage in the work of ending violence with great organizations they might not know about otherwise.
