What’s your story?
on April 23, 2009
Oakland North is introducing an new ongoing feature on our site called “Letters from the Community.” Our first letter is from Jilala Foley, who writes about her son’s recent shooting at an East Oakland sideshow. If you have an essay or letter you’d like us to consider–about any aspect of life in Oakland–send us a message at j201editors [at] gmail [dot] com.
Oakland North welcomes comments from our readers, but we ask users to keep all discussion civil and on-topic. Comments post automatically without review from our staff, but we reserve the right to delete material that is libelous, a personal attack, or spam. We request that commenters consistently use the same login name. Comments from the same user posted under multiple aliases may be deleted. Oakland North assumes no liability for comments posted to the site and no endorsement is implied; commenters are solely responsible for their own content.
Oakland North is an online news service produced by students at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and covering Oakland, California. Our goals are to improve local coverage, innovate with digital media, and listen to you–about the issues that concern you and the reporting you’d like to see in your community. Please send news tips to: email@example.com.
