Oakland Mutual Aid Collective (OMAC)
We are proud to be a founding partner of the Oakland Mutual Aid Collective (OMAC), is a project to fundraise for, procure and rapidly distribute 30,000 reusable cloth face masks and public health information to vulnerable communities in Oakland. These communities include the unhoused, low-income and immigrant families, seniors, essential workers, and other under-resourced adults, children, youth, and families.
One Love Black Mamas
One Love Black Mamas was born with the solidarity of Black identifying health care workers and community members. Our Black identifying community team shows up weekly with love, respect, humility, and more. We are committed to building trust in our communities so we have a strict no strings attached policy which means we don't share any of the families' information in exchange for donations. We center Black mamas, their families, and the community.
