We’re happy to announce that we have a new office location in Oakland!
After several years at our office in Jack London Square, RDA has moved across town to a new location off the northwest corner of Lake Merritt. Our new address is:
2333 Harrison Street
Oakland, CA 94612
Given the expanding scope of our work across all our focus areas, we had outgrown our old office and needed a larger space. We were committed to remaining in Oakland and are thrilled we were able to find adequate space without leaving the city.
Please feel free to stop by and check out our new office. We’d be happy to show you around!
One Small Planet
It is impossible to look back over the events of the past year and not viscerally feel the interconnectedness between ourselves, our families, our communities, and the rest of the world. The struggles of other countries, even other states, that once felt like distant concerns confined to the evening news now take on a different meaning. The pandemic and its economic devastation; the urgent cries for racial justice; the ever-increasing threat of wildfires, hurricanes, and other climate-change-driven disasters: these challenges belong to all of us.
Moving from Crisis to Chronic
Six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are still operating in crisis mode. We are exhausted, and the items we put on the shelf are starting to stack up. It’s time to revisit our triage plans, no matter how planful or ad hoc, and re-evaluate our priorities and resources.
