Join us as we celebrate the graduation of the first Oakland cohort of Initiate Justice’s Institute of Impacted Leaders!
The Institute of Impacted Leaders is a 12-week organizing training program designed for people directly impacted by mass incarceration.
We work to end mass incarceration by activating the power of those of us who are most harmed by it. Because the intent of the punitive justice system is to rob us of our power, it is critical to remind ourselves of the types of power we can never lose, and develop our skills to be as effective as possible in organizing and advocating for ourselves.
Graduates have completed 12 weeks of community organizing, policy advocacy, and know your rights trainings and have participated in at least one legislative visit. Celebrate these amazing achievements with us and uplift these powerful stories!
Dinner will be served and ample free parking will be available. Please reach out to taina at initiatejustice.org with questions.
Hope to see you there!
