Po' Peoples Oakland Mayoral Candidate Forum

What: Poor and Houseless Peoples' Lead an Oakland Mayoral Candidate Forum
Where: Homefulness/POOR Magazine - 8032 MacArthur Bl East Oakland
When: 5pm Today, Thursday, Oct 25th
Every election year we Poverty Skolaz at POOR Magazine/Prensa POBRE organize a Poor Peoples Candidate Forum so candidates can really listen/respond/commit to poor/working class/houseless youth, adults and elders and find out how your campaigns will impact us - the least or never served- the 1st and worst impacted by politricks which is especially urgent in this time of extreme emergency for poor and unhoused Oakland residents, where massive evictions, displacement and "sweeps" of our unhoused and poor bodies out of Oakland is the new normal.

POOR Magazine is a poor and indigenous people-led movement of media, education, art and solutions created, produced and conceived by poor, unhoused, formerly unhoused,disabled, criminalized, incarcerated and displaced people and has been operating for twenty one years in the Bay area with a long history of making sure that the voices of poor people are heard in the media and in the political arena locally, nationally and internationally.

The forum will be held at one of the Comm-Unity classrooms/homes at Deecolonize Academy ( a poor mama & uncle led liberation school for children in poverty) and Homefulness- a homeless peoples solution to homelessness that us Po folks are building in Deep East Oakland)

This forum with poverty scholars will be hosted and air on the Po Peoples Revolutionary Newzroom on PNN-KEXU 96.1fm which is on the dial in East Oakland and stream live on www.poormagazine.org/radio and our Youtube channel PoorNewsNetwork -  Space is limited - so please RSVP- at poormag@gmail.com- there will also be a review of ballot initiatives that impact low and no-income communities-

As we get closer to (S)election day, POOR Magazine tries to make sure that our struggles and lives arent just used for more campaign fodder- but that poor people's voices are actually included and heard and that we are well educated before we walk in the voting booth. ##

**Confirmed Candidates as of this release: Cat Brooks, Said Karamooz and Jesse Smith
