The mission of the Standing for Justice (SFJ) club is to advocate for and advance racial justice via education, dialogue, and civic action. We are committed to learning, engaging in conversation and debate, and supporting efforts promoting justice and the non-violent eradication of attitudes, actions, and policies that perpetuate systemic racism and oppression. We work to promote equity and justice in our daily actions. Under the umbrella of racial justice we take into account the intersectionality of oppression, and include environmental, health care, housing, economic, education, labor, child & elder care justice, voting rights and law reform.
Our education efforts include publishing informational and inspirational articles in the Oakmont News, disseminating leads to readings/films/seminars/organizations/events, and presenting dialogue-promoting educational forums in conjunction with the Oakmont Democratic Club (ODC).
We invite engagement in local/regional/State/National/international civic action, and relevant actions are announced via email communications.
Interactive forums will be presented quarterly at the ODC’s regular meeting time, which is the 4th Thursday of each month, with socializing at 6:30 pm, program starting at 7:00 pm, and ending at 8:00 pm.
Civic actions and events are scheduled on an ongoing basis.
All Oakmont residents are welcome to join our Standing for Justice club, which has no membership fee, and are highly encouraged to join the Oakmont Democratic Club, with an annual membership fee of $25, via the ODC website (https://oakmontdemclub.com).
