Community Ready Corps

Oakland, CA

Our Prime Objective is to build and/or contribute to self-determination in disenfranchised communities. We believe that, in order to be truly self-determined, a community needs to be able to express power wherever power is being expressed. With this in mind, we work towards the empowerment of oppressed people and communities in what we call the 9 Components of Self Determination: Self Defense & Safety, Economics & Prosperity, Family Systems & Stability, Traditions & Ways, Technology & Efficacy, Education & Competence, Art & Media, Politics & Governance, Health & Well Being
