The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights' Reclaim the Future program is hosting a Solution Salon Thursday, May 18th from 6-8 PM at the James Irvine Conference Center (353 Frank Ogawa Plaza, near 14th and Broadway in Oakland).
Even though this is a Bay Area event, I wanted to post about it here because it seems like a great model for other organizations and cities to follow. Plus, it is far enough away that if you want to come check it out, you can still book a plane ticket!
The Solution Salons will bring together top thinkers and doers in the country to talk about the keys to making Oakland a national leader economically, ecologically and socially.
Check out who is speaking at this salon:
MacArthur "Genius" Fellow
Founder and Executive Director
Sustainable South Bronx
Author, The Ecology of Commerce
Community Education Coordinator
Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
Alliance for West Oakland Development
Come on over to Oaktown and check it out!
