The 2nd Annual Bay Area Breaking the Silence Town Hall (#BTSBayArea) is a space to Amplify, Educate, and Advocate in support of *girls and women of color in our surrounding communities. The #BTSBayArea provides a multi-faceted opportunity for local decision makers to listen to the challenges and daily experiences of our friends, parents, siblings, and children by elevating their unique experiences and centering their leadership. This year’s event aims to creatively and collectively identify opportunities for intervention and serve as catalyst for the formation of the Commission on Women of Color for the City of Oakland.
Omi Gallery at Impact Hub Oakland and members of the #BTSBayArea Planning Committee in collaboration with Community Partners invite you to join us Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, from 11am - 5pm for a powerful day of action and restoration discussing a range of issues including health/healing, education, violence, and gentrification. Sliding Scale Tickets: Free - $20 (includes lunch and Child Care).
*Girls and women of color is an inclusive term reflecting all those who were assigned and/or identify as female.
