#PowerToThePolls: Breaking Down Barriers to Voting in the East Bay

  • Oakland City Hall 1 Frank H Ogawa Plaza Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

2018 is a consequential election year and #EveryEastBayVote deserves to be heard. However, many members of our communities still face barriers to bringing their #PowerToThePolls. Join Women's March Oakland and Women's March for a community conference to learn about these voting obstacles and how we can fight to remove them.

The event will feature speakers from Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Black Women Organized for Political Action, Political and Proud CA, and more, with a panel moderated by Ellie Tumbuan of The Justice Collective. We will also be hosting a GOTV phone bank.

This free event is open to all. Please register on Eventbrite to give us a more accurate attendance estimate.
