1st Meeting Saturday Sept 23, 10am at Lake Merritt

“Sidewalk Talk” is an ongoing community listening project that promotes empathy and wellness through offering listening in public spaces: “We quite simply take two chairs, one for us and one for you, out on city streets sit down and offer to listen to anyone about anything.” Participants will be trained in principles of supportive listening by local experts and serve as listeners at local scheduled listening sessions throughout Oakland.

Leader: Myisha Hill and Travia Fitzpatrick
