CONNECTING NORTH OAKLAND NEIGHBORS THROUGH STORIES, SHARED RESOURCES & CELEBRATIONS @commons_archive
BLOCK BY BLOCK
'Block By Block' connects neighbors on a very local scale in North Oakland. Building on the legacy of area block club hospitality, 'Block by Block' will form new pathways to share information, resources and camaraderie with people who live next door and down the street.
Collaborating with several neighborhood groups, we are developing prototypes to create phone trees for both urgent, emergency response and regular neighborly check-ins. It is more important than ever that we find ways to support each other during this time of unprecedented environmental calamities and systematic failures. A simple phone call can soften the edges of prolonged isolation, bridge digital gaps, and bring neighbors closer together. By lending an ear to share information and stories, 'Block By Block' sustains local economies of care.
