Oakland’s demographics are changing. Join the Oakland Mayor’s Commission on Aging for a series of Community Presentation & Listening Sessions to find out how you, your friends, and your neighbors can help make Oakland an age-friendly city—a livable community for all ages.


At each session we will discuss age-friendly domains for livable cities, including: Health & Wellness; Parks/Outside Spaces; Transportation; Social Participation; Employment; Civic Engagement; Volunteering; Housing; and Community Information.

Community listening sessions are free and open to the public. Sessions will be held in the following districts throughout the city. Your voice is important. Please join us!
