In this bout of “Tale of Two Cities”, we explore how everyday persons are transforming their lives and communities in imaginative ways.
From reporter Caron Creighton, we hear about how exactly Phat Beets Produce is improving usage of fresh produce in low income communities in North Oakland. Up coming, reporter Alondra De La Cruz needs us to Starline Sociable Club, a bar in downtown Oakland where in fact the owner organizes lease parties to help homeless people. In that case, Sarah El Safty reviews from a “fixit clinic” at the Oakland Public Library, where coaches support persons repair their broken items. Lastly, hosts Sophia Seafood and Sarah Cahlan interview Carla Maria Pérez, personnel collective member at the sociable justice nonprofit Movement Generation, about what resistance looks like in Oakland today.
Listen to the instance by simply Oakland North staff.
