According to the Urban Institute Education Policy Center, nearly 70% of
Oakland youth and 80% of all African American males do not finish high
school. It is time for our community to take action to address this
crisis as it relates to so many other problems within Oakland,
including unemployment, crime and violence.

Education Not Incarceration (ENI) is fast becoming a national
organization centered in Oakland, CA, comprised of individuals
and organizations, with new chapters starting every week.
In Oakland over this summer we helped turn out over
100 people to a forum at Oakland City Hall that was initially
slated to talk about how to incarcerate more of Oakland's youth.
Through our organizing, along with our allies, we changed the
forum's direction to one focussed on the need for opportunities
for our youth.

Now is an opportune time for us to build off this event and take
action in Oakland!

Join us at our first Oakland planning meeting of the school year:
Monday, September 25, 6-8PM
Oakland Education Association office, 272 East 12th Street (at 3rd Ave)
Please bring food to share! Children are always welcome!!
