About the event
Since 2015, residents across Oakland have come out to celebrate the annual “#510Day” at Lake Merritt - a free, public, intergenerational, grassroots community event dedicated to the celebration of Oakland’s history and culture in the face of the rapidly growing housing crisis and the pressures of gentrification that are pushing long-term residents out of the area. Displacement is not the only by-product of gentrification, as newcomers to Oakland have been increasingly responding to the culture here in hostile, dangerous and potentially deadly ways particularly to Black and Brown residents over the past decade. This year's 510Day will start at Lake Merritt, to present the cultural resilience of Oakland's diverse communities; showcase creative wellness; and offer visions for our collective future in each neighborhood. Inspired by 415DAY!!!! Deeply Rooted Collaborative will set up a booth at the event to connect with people about the Oakland General Plan 2045.
