Oakland is diverse and Oakland is proud. Our newly re-launched project 'We Are Oaklandish' is a photography project created to highlight just that. This body of portraits and stories sheds light on the different experiences, memories, and opinions from the people in the city we love. Stay tuned to hear the voices of our staff, local artists, makers, and anyone and everyone from The Town.
As background: back in 2012 we created our 'I Am Oaklandish' campaign that featured true Oakland originals from all walks of life. People who give our city its oddball spirit, its passion for justice, and its creative vigor. They lift us up with laughter, peace, nourishment, and authentic hard work. They make us proud to call this town our home. They are Oaklandish.
