Event Description

Join UC Berkeley students, staff, and faculty for an address by Oakland Mayor Jean Quan on the role of local government in preserving social justice. After the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, many doubts on the fairness and effectiveness of local government have arisen. In her address, Mayor Quan will share some of the initiatives she undertook to reduce crime, elevate economic opportunity for low-income families, and increase outcomes for youth of color in Oakland. Based on collaborations with urban cities across the country that are facing similar challenges, she will discuss her grassroots approach to making local government more effective in meeting the needs of diverse communities. We hope you will join us for this stimulating talk by one of the Bay Area's leading political figures.
