Thanks to Angelo Sandoval and Nifa for joining Oakland Rising today to talk about their event, Night Out for Safety and Liberation, at Josie De La Cruz Park in Fruitvale from 4-6 pm. If you want to volunteer, reach out to Angelo Sandoval at [email protected]. Listen in as we talk about love, liberation, true safety and how we do this without cops.
“Communities that are the safest aren’t the ones with the most police and the most prisons, and they’re certainly not the ones where you are being watched. They are the ones where you are seen, where you are heard, where you connect. The ones where your neighbor knows your name and you know their name. Where if someone’s playing the music too loud you can just ask them to turn it down, and you don’t have to call the police and have that situation escalate.”- Angelo Sandoval
