Kids Standing Up for Kids in Oakland
Please join us for the family friendly gathering elevating the voices of our children in sending the message that they, too, are outraged at what is happening to families at the border. This gathering is an effort to send a message of solidarity and support to the kids at the border, and to compel the government to act. The event is co-hosted by the Alphabet Rockers, sponsored by the Center For Biological Diversity, Destiny Arts Center, the The Junior Center of Art and Science, Wayfinding Wisdom and generous individual donors, and supported by Abundant Beginnings, Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Spotlight:Girls and Women’s March Oakland 2018.
