#HELLATIGHT: How Black Organizers Got Police Out of Oakland Schools
Black Organizing Project
Oakland has experienced a lot of institutionalized racism, culminating in the shooting of Oscar Grant by police. That prompted the Black Organizing Project to take action, and they’ve won major victories for the community, including getting OPD out of schools.
This video is part of a 2-year series by YR Media to highlight California-based nonprofits uplifting Black and Brown communities by providing them with a new platform to talk about their work, issues and the people they serve. These organizations are focusing on the needs of housing affordability, income inequality, racial justice and more.
