Lightning Bolt is helping build a sustainable and tangible sense of community safety in Oakland by facilitating trainings for small businesses free of cost. These are the common spaces we participate in and utilize in our day-to-day lives, so it follows that these are the spaces that can help defend and nurture our communities as they become sites of skilled preparedness.
We are networked with long-time community experts in transformative justice, disaster relief, and proactive defense from political crises that target our more precarious Oaklanders in the margins of society. Because we value these important skill sets, we recognize that paying our trainers is a material way of showing our support and appreciation for the heroic work they do for Oakland. To compensate them for their labor of love, we ask that folks donate to our upcoming training November 13th so that we can afford to pay them for their time and effort.
We thank you for your time and support for an Oakland that is evermore ready for the future!
We need to raise $700 by Friday! Can you help?
