An independent media site committed to covering Oakland’s neighborhoods, people, news, arts, culture and innovation. Our mission is to create deeper ties to Oakland’s diverse perspectives by telling stories, shining light on key issues and being a catalyst for community. We are journalists, storytellers, artists, business owners, innovators, organizers, advocates and neighbors. Oakland Local and its team are dedicated to telling stories that should be told – but are usually not.
