Additional Details

I'd like some help with identifying a volunteer to help facilitate a program design workshop for an Oakland COVID-prevention community initiative.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Project goals, collaborative partners, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have written proposal, dedicated City funding, and the ability to provide any other information you need.

this collaborative effort will target the area of the City that has had the highest disparate impacts from the pandemic. It is a collaboration of over 25 community groups working on a community-level response
