Want to get involved with SURJ Bay Area? Come learn about our current work and activities. You'll also hear about SURJ committees, as well as upcoming workshops and events. We'll answer your questions, and share how you can get involved in the movement for racial justice. Note: We are holding intro meetings twice a month.
We ask that attendees please refrain from wearing scented or fragranced body products or laundry detergent, to support access for people with chemical sensitivities. See https://eastbaymeditation.org/resources/fragrance-free- at-ebmc/ for more info on going fragrance free. While OACC does attempt to use unscented products as much as possible, they do use some chemically scented cleaning products such as bleach, window cleaner, and possibly the bathroom hand soap. We will provide fragrance free soap in the bathrooms, and will reserve several rows of seating for people who are sure that they are free of fragrances and need to sit in a space that is less scented.
The entrances to Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) are wheelchair accessible. The door ison the second floor and is accessible by elevator, escalator and stairs. You can enter the plaza (which takes up the entire block between 9th and 1 th streets and Webster and Franklin streets) from all directions except 10 th street. The building is ADA compliant: the doors have long handles that open out; we will also have someone at the door. Restrooms have wheelchair accessible stalls, with handles at a reasonable height. Restrooms are gendered with multiple stalls and a urinal in the men’s room at OACC, but we ask everyone to treat them as gender neutral and use whichever restroom feels most comfortable.
If you have additional access needs, questions, or offerings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The closest BART station is 12th Street BART. If you come by Bart, take the 11th and Broadway exit from the 12th St. Station. Turn left on 11th Street and right on Franklin. The plaza will be on the left-hand side.
