We work hard, but we also (Democratic) Party hard.

1/23: the work goes on, the cause endures (January 2019 Meeting)

To paraphrase one progressive Democratic presidential candidate from 1980, for us, months ago, this election came to an end. For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.

Join us on 1/23 at 2044 Franklin St, Oakland 7-9pm (doors open at 6:30pm) for our first General Membership meeting of the year! Meet the new Board, recap 2018 with us, and let’s have a serious discussion about immigration, homelessness, and the Point in Time Count.

1/19: Women’s MArch Oakland 2019!

“The woman power of this nation can be the power which makes us whole.”
— Coretta Scott King

We encourage everyone to join us at the Women’s March Oakland 2019 to show our support as we continue to fight against the discrimination and misogyny of our society.

EBYD will have a table for this event so hopefully we’ll see you there!
