OCCUR and the SF Foundation FAITHS Program Presents One Voice – 2020 FAITHS Leadership Forum & End of the Year Celebration




Leadership, a word often used yet not fully understood. In times of uncertainty and division, leadership is often referenced as the solution to all things. Real leadership is not found from up high, but here on the ground. “If you look a little closer at those who can influence folks to get things done, you’ll find that leadership is all around you.”

This brings me to this invitation for our next forum, “One Voice – 2020 FAITHS Leadership Forum & End of the Year Celebration.” This gathering will bring together some of our most committed and effective community leaders to discuss the meaning of faith, power and equity during these times and how we can continue to thrive in 2021 and beyond.

This will be an opportunity to network and connect with individuals who share a passion for service and community. We will also discuss how we can interweave faith and nonprofit practices and take the steps needed to support marginalized communities to unlock their power and voices to affect change in 2021. Please join us on this momentous occasion.

To view this free leadership forum on Thursday, December 10th from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., please RSVP by visiting our website, email or by calling OCCUR at (510) 839-2440.

Charla Montgomery is the managing director of OCCUR.


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.
