Saturday, Dec. 8
Onetta Harris Community Center — Menlo Park, CA
All of Us or None members understand how hard the holidays are for families with incarcerated loved ones. That’s why we organize this annual event each December to give bikes and other gifts to children with parents in jails and prisons throughout California, on behalf of their incarcerated parent.
The event reminds children that they have a whole community of people who care about them, and also supports former prisoners in their efforts to positively impact their communities. It is dedicated to the memory of Robert Moody, a formerly incarcerated activist who helped initiate the project.
The Community Giveback puts a human face on our struggle, empowers and uplifts our community, and serves as a powerful way for formerly incarcerated people to reclaim our humanity. We are motivated by love and hope, a love and hope that our community is often denied.
The annual Community Giveback is supported 100% by donations and volunteer time, and we take donations year-round to cover expenses. (Allies and supporters can also help by sponsoring the purchase of a bicycle.)
