Oct 14, Oakland: #FreeThemCA Panel of Criminalized Survivors & Letter Writing

October 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
East Side Arts Alliance, 2277 International Blvd.

This is significant compared to 1-2 people commuted per term by past Governors since the 1960s.

We will discover how ableism in tandem with other oppressions continues to form and inform all social systems, including the…
