Funding Our Own Liberation is a panel of 5 organizations across Oakland and San Francisco that are challenging traditional leadership and philanthropy by funding their own communities. Youth in these groups will talk about their experiences and why youth have to be at the center of identifying, addressing and funding work to address the needs of their communities. Audience members will be able to ask questions to deepen a discussion around how we can all work together toward liberation.
