North Oakland Now 6.25.09
on June 25, 2009
In honor of Pride this weekend, Oakland North reported on the high concentration of lesbian households in Oakland, as more families move to the East Bay for its affordability and diversity. We’re also keeping you abreast of new developments with our meeting coverage, which includes a community meeting last night where BART officials, representatives from the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and community members banged heads. KALA Art institute near the Berkeley/Oakland border on San Pablo is hosting an art, wine and music event tonight which will include free wine tastings. It starts at 5:30 – don’t miss it! $5 suggested donation at the door.
