Solution Salon

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:

Majora Carter
MacArthur "Genius" Fellow
Founder and Executive Director
Sustainable South Bronx

Paul Hawken
Author, The Ecology of Commerce

Geralina Fortier
Community Education Coordinator
People's Grocery

Van Jones
Executive Director
Ella Baker Center for Human Rights

Bruce Cox
Board President
Alliance for West Oakland Development

Come on over to Oaktown and check it out!
