Greenpeace Action Center - 955 7th St. Oakland, CA
The Action Center is right off the 880 Freeway. If you choose to drive, there will be complimentary valet parking in a secured lot. Pull up to the front of the Action Center, at 955 7th Street, Oakland, and look for the parking attendants curbside.
The Action Center is easily accessible from the West Oakland BART Station. It is a 13 minute walk or 3 minute Uber/Lyft/Taxi ride from the Action Center.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Cocktail and Business attire are suggested, but above all, we want you to be comfortable! The venue is both indoors and outdoors (we will have heat lamps & coat check), so please bring layers and dress according to the weather.
WILL THERE BE A SEATED DINNER?
No, but there will be delicious food served throughout the evening! Because the Action Center is so expansive and fun to explore, we didn't feel it would be fair to have people sitting in one place the whole night. There will be high tops, chairs, booths, lounges, and plenty of other seating, but no formal assigned seating at tables. We have three delicious, local & sustainable vegetarian food stations by Bay Laurel Culinary, all of which can accommodate vegan and gluten-free dietary restrictions. We’ll also have delicious dessert by Ben & Jerry's, in addition to Numi Tea and Blue Bottle coffee. We promise you won't leave hungry!
I WANT TO SUPPORT YOUR WORK. HOW DO I DO THAT?
Thank you! We have several different donation options at the event. You can visit www.donate.gpfund.org, or fill out a pledge card when you arrive. We will also have Donation Stations, where you can make your gift securely on one of our iPads.
WILL THERE BE SILENT AUCTION ITEMS?
Yes! All of the items we are offering are fun, experience-based adventures. Many of the items are unique to Greenpeace, and aren't available anywhere else. You can bid on a ride in our Airship, our Hot Air Balloon, one of our RIB's, or you can vacation in Costa Rica or in breathtaking Montana. Come join us on April 30th to check out all of the amazing Silent Auction items we are offering!
ABOUT THE GREENPEACE ACTION CENTER
The Greenpeace Oakland Action Center, where our event will be held, serves many functions. It’s the place where we store and maintain the equipment – from climbing gear and rigid inflatable boats to our airship and hot air balloon – that makes our iconic actions possible. We also host a large variety of trainings, meetings, art builds, workshops, banner making sessions and prop fabrications that help broaden the skills of Greenpeace activists and the greater progressive community.
