Intro to SURJ Meeting

Want to get involved with SURJ Bay Area? Come learn about our current work and activities. You'll also hear about SURJ's new pathways for entering the work including study and action groups as well as committee work, 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 now holding Intro meetings twice a month.

Parking and transportation:
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. There is metered street parking in the area that is free after 6 pm as well as a parking garage below the Plaza that is $1 per ½ hour. Please try to carpool and arrive early to leave time to find a spot. 
The entrances to the plaza where Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) are located are wheelchair accessible. You can enter the plaza (which takes up the entire block between 9th and 10th streets and Webster and Franklin streets) from all directions except 10th street. The door is on the second floor and is accessible by elevator, escalator and stairs. The building is ADA compliant: the bathroom doors have long handles that open out; and we will also have someone at the front 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.
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. 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 for more info on going fragrance free.
