RPAL’S Spring 2015 College Tour




By Brenda McCuistion


Two police officers, Officer Savannah Stewart and Officer Virgil Thomas accompanied Richmond Police Activities League (RPAL) to travel on the FIRST Southern California College Campus Tour with mentorship program participants.



During the April 7-9 college tour, music lovers visited CSU Northridge, known for producing Grammy award winners. A visit to UCLA ignited the inspiration of NBA hopefuls.


Students interested in the medical profession toured medical departments at various colleges.


Along with visiting six universities (Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara, CSU-Northridge, UCLA, CSU-Los Angeles and UC Merced), a visit to Magic Mountain for fun and adventure was also included.


The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and City of Richmond Office of Neighborhood Safety sponsored the visit.



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.
