Oakland Wiki is a community website about Oakland that anybody can contribute to. Including you and me! We are so very excited about this that we are hosting a series of neighborhood "edit parties" where Oakland Wiki volunteers will help you share what you know about Oakland.
It's very easy. You don't even need to have computer experience.
You can add information about:
- What your neighborhood is like
- Your family's history and experiences
- Cultural events and history
- Fun things to do
- Anything else you think other people should know about Oakland
Come to one or come to them all! Most of these have a focus for topics to write about, but you can feel free to come and learn about Oakland Wiki and write about whatever you'd like if the topic doesn't appeal.
