Conversations that Count with Kamala Harris: Owning Her Moment

Presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will sit down with journalist and attorney Star Jones for an intimate conversation about the value of owning the moment.

Conversations that Count – Power Presence, Born to Win: Profiles in Courage from the Campaign Trail

Clarke will moderate a discussion with former Georgia Rep. and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who recently founded Fair Fight, an organization that seeks to advocate for free and fair elections, and Danny Best, senior director of global diversity and inclusion at Dell.

Conversations that Count: Valerie Jarrett on Finding Her Voice

Political commentator Symone D. Sanders will moderate a discussion featuring former senior adviser to former President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett and Salene Hitchcock-Gear, president of Prudential Individual Life Insurance.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
