Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood, an organization that does exactly what it describes in its name, is hitting the road again. The organization, which has been operating for more than 20 years, is led by the indefatigable Cameron Miles.

“Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood will travel to Memphis, Tenn., from June 20 thru June 23. When so many of our Kings and Queens are dying due to violence it is vital that our young Kings especially see that there is more to life than Baltimore. And learn the importance of exposure, choosing the right friends and making good choices,” said Miles.

“The Kings will visit the Civil Rights Museum, Lane College, which is an HBCU, historic Beale Street, participate in a rock climbing event and much more.”

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, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
