What’s happening? Broadening Participation in Local Government
How much do you really know about the workings of Oakland city government? How can you and your neighbors be more active in shaping city policies and actions ahead of time, instead of reacting after local officials do something you don’t like? Join us as we address these and other questions with the help of guest speakers Susan Stuart Clark of Common Knowledge (http://www.ckgroup.org) and Steve Spiker of Open Oakland (http://www.openoakland.org).
