The Oakland Peace Center is a physical space and a network of people and organizations. There are also staff and a board whose mission is to breathe life into the building and strengthen the connections among the partners so that together we can create a peaceful and just Bay Area.

The Oakland Peace Center is a community of artists, activists, cultural workers, educators and non-profits collaborating to bring about a city of hope, justice, nonviolence and compassion. We provide needed space, host collaborative events and trainings, and create a network of emotional and spiritual support for the 35+ Oakland-rooted organizations who partner in with us. Together, we pursue access, opportunity, justice, and inner peace throughout the Bay Area each.
