East Oakland DREAMers is premiering its first film: (In) visible + (Un) told! This film was made possible through the Bay Area Inspire Awards and Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, which fund socially conscious projects every year. As a nonprofit, EOD provides programming to support the migrant community in the Bay, including internships, academic support, Know Your Rights workshops, scholarships, and emergency funds for legal and housing needs. This is our first foray into film-making, and we are so excited to present a narrative that challenges the mainstream media’s portrayal of our diverse and resilient migrant communities! You can get a sneak peak at some of our work leading up to the film here.
The film will premiere at a fundraising event held in collaboration with 67 Sueños. Please mark your calendars to come through Friday June 7th, from 5-7 pm @ 1721 Broadway #201 – we will also feature live performances, vendors, food, and a panel of youth presenters!
You can RSVP via our Facebook page (East Oakland DREAMers), or just show up! The suggested donation is $5-$15 at the door. If you are interested in supporting but unable to attend, you can donate through PayPal at our donate button.
Due to urgency of sharing updates and resources to the community, we have put together an immigration resource 1 pager with 24/7 updates regarding new immigration information as it is released every day.
East Oakland DREAMers was founded in 2009 to help undocumented students realize their college dreams. Since then, our non-profit has expanded its vision of transformative struggle and critical hope.
East Oakland DREAMers believes in the power of education to combat institutional, systemic, and structural oppression. We promote critical resistance through mentorship, in-school support, and community education. We work for equity by providing underserved youth with academic preparation, and college access and persistence support. In order to ensure all youth can access these services, we provide financial aid, legal help, and job placement services.
We are committed to promoting social justice and creating intergenerational change for our families and communities.
Donations to East Oakland DREAMers are tax deductible and funds raised go to our partner law clinic, East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, or to our emergency legal fund.
