Oakland's Racial Divide: Build the Uhuru Solidarity Movement!

Come to the Uhuru Solidarity Rally to Build Our Organization!
Oakland's Racial Divide
Presentation & Discussion
Monday, July 28th, 7 to 9pm
Humanist Hall, 390 - 27th St., Oakland

In the midst of the wealth and affluence of the Bay Area, African and other oppressed communities live under deep poverty and oppression.

* One out of five households in Oakland live on less than $15,000 a year
* An African child in West Oakland can expect to die 15 years earlier than a white child in the Oakland hills
* In Alameda County, Africans are sentenced to prison for drug offenses at a rate 34 times higher than that of whites even though they use drugs at about the same rate
* In 1990 African people made up nearly 50% of the population of Oakland and now make up around 25% due to gentrification

Join the work of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and Uhuru Foods supporting the African community led Uhuru Movement campaigns to transform conditions of poverty, massive imprisonment, police violence and gentrification and to unite African people in a struggle for the unification of their land and resources and to build a truly sustainable future. The Uhuru Movement is calling for all allies to join in solidarity!
With Bakari Olatunji of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement, Wendy Snyder of the African People's Solidarity Committee
