OMCA hosts Extinction Rebellion (XR) and the City’s Sustainability and Resilience team to share how we can take action on climate change in Oakland through art, community, and organizing.
Extinction Rebellion invites you to screen print and paint climate justice designs, interact with their street theater performers and large puppets, which are often used at protest actions, and view climate visual art and performances meant to spark reflection, discussion and action. Learn how to get involved in the climate justice movement as well as local environmental stewardship in the Bay Area with XR and other partner organizations.
Sustainable Oakland will share how you can help the City of Oakland mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis in ways that improve racial equity across Oakland. The City’s 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan seeks to transition all buildings in Oakland to 100% electric by 2040, and residents are invited to shape how this will unfold. Meet the City’s Sustainability and Resilience team and discover how electrification improves home health and safety and what supportive services are available to help residents make the transition to an all-electric home.
Enjoy music by DJ Ron Reeser from 6 to 8 pm.
