In relationship with each other, we magnify our power and our work exponentially, and we can share and lighten one anotherÃ¢â‚¬â"¢s burdens. Although Director, Sandhya is inspired by the dozens of powerful people stepping up to make the Oakland Peace Center a force for transformation in the community.
