Recruiting Organization: OCA - Asian Pacific American Advocates: East Bay Chapter

OCA-East Bay ( ocaeastbay.org) has been organizing this PickITup Chinatown program for the better part of 7 years. The goal is to teach community ownership through picking up garbage/litter, reporting problems to City public works and abating graffiti.

We meet almost every Second Sunday of each month from 11am-2pm, meeting up at Wilma Chan (Madison) Park.

We have had strong partnership from the following over the years:

- Oakland City Council President Nikki Fortunato Bas

- Asian Youth Services Committee

- BuildOn Oakland High

- Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce

- Oakland Chinatown Improvement Council

- Oakland Chinatown Coalition

- Boy Scout Troop 201

- Athenian School

In response to some of the community safety concerns in Chinatown, there has been an increased police presence as well as ambassador and volunteer patrols in the area. While that's not a guarantee, we will take precautions to try and limit risks, the main one utilizing strength in numbers.

This is a volunteer-run operation and we're hoping for people to join our team who might be interested in helping not only with the PickItup itself but also the setup/takedown and areas of pre-planning. For more info contact us at ocaeastbay@gmail.com
