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.
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.
What a gift to talk with someone so skilled and knowledgeable in the field. The fact that someone who could draw a very high consulting fee invested that time in us as a volunteer made me feel really supported. And it positioned our organization to make some really well informed decisions.
Sandhya and I had a terrific call. I think I was able to help her think through the implications and potential complications of being a Fiscal Agent.
