What's up this weekend! We miss First Fridays... but we love our Mamas! It's all about Mother's Day Weekend - here's our playlist to celebrate! What's your favorite song about Momma?

This playlist is created by beloved community member, VaShone, and dedicated to her mom:

"My mother is amazing, dynamic, and powerful... She has shared her love and liberal hugs with many in our village and community. My siblings and I have been well-loved and taken care of. Karen Huff is the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman. I recognize her own personal journey that led her wife and mother. I am eternally grateful that God allowed her to steward my soul."

The holidays can be debilitating for people of color that are going through tough financial times. It can be isolating not being able to participate or provide gifts for their families. This causes feelings of shame, anger and depression. We've made it our goal is to help 300 low-income Oakland families of color by providing gift cards to help them through these tough times. Let's do this together! We encourage you to contribute, Adopt A Family, support Oakland. Visit www.evolveoakland.com for more info and to participate.

Our vision to close the adventure gap for people of color, starts with the youngest generation through education, imploring sportswomanship, and cultivate a viable community culture that promotes the inclusion of diversity, especially girls of color, in adventure-based sports and outdoor recreation. Season Starts 4:30p-6p Thursday, Sept 6th @ Great Western Power Company. 2 spots are left! For more information and to register log on to:
