Please join us for a PLD planning meeting to discuss keynote speaker options, panel topic ideas, and work on the logistics of the day's event. This is a great opportunity to meet other NLG student activists and collaborate on the largest student-run NLG event of the year in the Bay Area.
Our next Anti Racism Committee meeting will be on Monday, June 23rd at 6:30 PM in Oakland.
Today the NLGSF endorsed the initiative to create an Oakland City ID card. We believe that the potential benefits for Oakland residents more than justify the work of the Oakland City ID Card Coalition and the City's careful consideration and expeditious implementation of such a card. The ID card will fill a void by providing an official form of personal identification for the many Oakland residents who currently lack one. The ID card will also unify the Oakland community, make it safer and more secure, benefit the local economy, and facilitate participation in public and private City activities.
